Nuestra Senora de los remedios is the patron saint of the district of Remedios in the province of Chiriquí, Panama. The original image of Nuestra Senora de los remedios was bathed in gold so that it was not lost. The current image that is found in the church is around 300 years old. An artist noticed the church lacked an image of the “Patroness”. He ended up making three images, because he had three models. The citizens chose the image of the model named Maria de los Reyes in honor of the Maji. Which is why the feast day is celebrated on the 6th of January, the same time the three maji arrived to celebrate the birth of Christ.
