A Plaque Marks Saint Joseph’s Posthumous Miracle

This tiny landmark, located on the side of the Church of Santa Maria del Pi in the middle of Barcelona’s dense Gothic Quarter, marks a seemingly trivial event.

On April 6, 1806, priest José Mestres fell off a walkway on the outside of the church’s apse. He rose unscathed from the experience, and attributed the event to Joseph Oriol, a Catalan priest at del Pi whose remains are interred inside the church.
