Santería

A combination of Catholicism and ancient African magic, similar to voodoo, which is based on the worship of saints or Santeria. Believers visit Santerían spiritual healers for medical help—e.g., to cure dread diseases such as cancer. All Santerían priests and priestesses are herbalists who used plants as both remedies and for their “magic”.
