El Santo Niņo de Atocha is always dressed as a boy pilgrim from the 13th century. He wears a hat and a very ornate cloak and holds a basket of roses or food in one hand and a pilgrim's staff in the other hand. In art, the Santo Niņo's basket is sometimes shown empty, giving the impression that he has been out serving the needy; however, reports given by those who saw the Santo Niņo claim that his basket never ran out of food. Also, his pilgrim's staff is often depicted with a water gourd fastened to the staff.
In later years, a shell pattern called the St. James Shell was pictured on the cape on his outfit in artwork. This identifies the Santo Niņo with northern Spain (the destination of many who fled from the Moors), because the St. James Shell is a symbol of the pilgrims to the Shrine of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain.
Nino de Atocha is the Patron Saint of Prisoners.
