“In adverse conditions the terreiro community created conditions for the Xango Stone to be recognized and designated as a cultural and geological heritage. Candombé is a symbol of ancestrality, resistance, transmission of knowledge and traditions belonging to a suffering people that, despite living in a diaspora, managed to reelaborate their worldview and to survive with their faith. Xango Stone is a sacred place, is ancestrality. “The sacred hasn’t got necessarily to be an entity we know or imagine. It can be a tree […] and even a river running away […] (SOMÉ, 2003, p. 28). And it can be a beautiful rock pointing to the skies”. (SILVA, 2019)
