Photos of Difunta Correa shrines found along roads in Argentina.­

The Difunta Correa is a semi-pagan mythical figure in folk-religion, for which a number of people in Argentina and Chile, especially among the popular classes, feel a great devotion.­

The cultus to the Difunta Correa is that of an unofficial popular saint, not recognised by the Catholic Church.­

The votive offerings found on Difunta Correa shrines are often mechanical parts from cars such as spark plugs, radiators, clutches, presumably to protect road travelers from having mechanical problems.­
