El Pedestal, ruta de peregrinaje y turismo

Redacción: Katty Paucar Carrión

Descubre la belleza de nuestros paisajes, de nuestras reliquias patrimoniales, espectaculares escenarios entre los varios destinos turísticos que caracteriza a nuestra ciudad pintoresca y cultural.

El Pedestal, está ubicado en el cantón Loja, en la parroquia urbana Sucre; inaugurada el 24 de mayo de 1927 junto con la construcción de la iglesia, la más grande que tiene la ciudad de Loja y consecuentemente la más poblada.

Es considerada uno de los lugares turísticos de Loja que genera mayor curiosidad, por la Imagen de la Inmaculada Concepción, templo de estilo neoclásico, la cubierta construida con tejido de madera fina.  Alrededor de esta enigmática figura religiosa se esconden misteriosas leyendas y tradiciones.

La Virgen de la Inmaculada Concepción de Loja antes llamada Virgen Morena o Negra, es hecha de bronce y desde hace cincuenta décadas pasadas era venerada y le rendían tributo el pueblo afro ecuatoriano que radicó en el Valle de Catamayo, los cuales eran acogidos por los lojanos con ropa y alimentos durante su permanencia.

Así mismo, cuentan que todos los 20 de agosto cambiaban la vestimenta de la imagen y en el descanso que hacía en el Pedestal, trasladaban en hombros la urna de la Virgen por la calle Epiclachima. Las acémilas y las caminatas largas con productos agrícolas transportaban a los fieles que alrededor de la fogata, bailaban danzas con atuendos atractivos y coloridos. 

El Pedestal está al occidente de la ciudad, a pocos pasos está su capilla; este hermoso lugar de vista espectacular cuenta con tradición e historia en la capital provincial, a sus 94 años de edificada mantienen intactas las reliquias que la caracterizan, el retablo, 2 pinturas al óleo que datan de 1860 y pertenecen a José Marcelino.

Durante las noches, alrededor de la luz de la luna, la brisa parece que canta y nos viste atractivos y auténticos, tanto así que al retratar una fotografía todo se convierte en magia.

El panorama nos permite apreciar los templos como San Francisco, San Sebastián, la Catedral, Santo Domingo, El Valle, las casas coloniales y republicanas de ese entonces.

Los recién casados, quinceañeras y visitantes se maravillan de este lugar y su amplia oferta cultural que es otra de sus características que seducen por su, arte y cultura, añadido a su iglesia construyen una verdadera ruta de peregrinaje y turismo.
