Juan del Jarro

Jardín Guerrero 11


His real name was Juan de Dios Azios, he was born in 1793. He was a wanderer who dedicated himself to collecting alms to distribute among his bereaved friends, the elderly or the mentally ill. He distinguished his top hat, his sack already worn and dirty by time and a jug, in which the believers said that the sea and snails were heard. It is said that he predicted tragedies and guessed the future. Juan del Jarro died on November 9, 1859, which is said to have been one of the most tumultuous funerals of which San Luis Potosí has had a record.
