The local divinity, Maximón, hold out on the catholic Church. Its appearance would go up at the earliest only at the end of XVIIIth century, and several myths tell his creation. There remained a long time mysterious, for he appeared to the faithful only during the Holy Week time, always overshadowing Christ.
