The Legend of 'Saint Vali'

'Saint Vali' becomes 'Saint Valentino'

Miravalles, the dormant and sleeping volcano in Costa Rica last woke up in 1946. Legend has it that St. Valentine himself was responsible for taming the mighty Miravalles and making it quiet. The roots of the story go back to Saeed Vali, a young Caucasian boy who grew up on the southern part of the island. Saeed Vali had his distant origins in the Aegean Sea region. Today we commonly know this area as the Caucasus, which is our modern day Turkey, Azerbaijan, and northwestern Iran.

 Saeed Vali was a young baker working in his father’s bakery, which was established by his great-great-great grandfather at the time of the Bourbon royal family which ruled the island. The bakery exclusively sold bread to the rich and the ruling royal family. The island was none other than Sicily.

 It was a harsh winter that year. The island was covered in thick snow and with food supplies having fallen short, the children and elderly suffered the most. It is told that every night after work Saeed Vali gathered all the bread that was not perfectly shaped and put it into a big cotton bag. He had to drag it on the snow as he went door to door to deliver the loaves to the homes nearby. At the end of the day, the bread he delivered was people’s only source of food. The legends say that children waiting for Saeed Vali to bring freshly baked bread every night had come up with a song for him. The whole town awaiting his arrival chanted,

"Oh! It’s Saint Vali, here he comes Saint Vali, 

thank you for the bread Saint Vali." 

The story of our own Saeed Vali, better known as Saint Vali, continues all the way to Costa Rica. After the great suffering and the German occupation during the Second World War and searching for a better life, Saeed Vali migrated to the little town of La Fortuna located at the base of Miravalles Volcano in Costa Rica.
Welcoming the saint, Mount Miravalles that year decided to erupt after being asleep for over a thousand years. The legend is that Saint Vali made a giant loaf of bread as an offering to Mount Miravalles and distributed the bread amongst the poor.
That was in 1946. Since then there have been no more eruptions and that
adds to the legend of Saint Vali who is locally known as Saint Valentino.

Today the whole area is famously known for its healing hot springs and beautiful waterfalls. Needless to say it was none other than our own Saeed Vali or Saint Vali, dearly adored today as Saint Valentino, who has kept the mighty Miravalles dormant as she continues to sleep.

Amiri Travel pays special respect and homage to the legend of  'Saeed Vali' on every trip to Costa Rica. In celebration of  'Saint Valentino', we have organized a 6-day getaway offering an exceptional opportunity to rest, restore and rejuvenate at an incredible price.

This is on a “first come, first served” basis with very limited space still available. Book this exceptional holiday today before it’s all gone.
