Milagro is the sixteenth studio album by Santana, released in 1992.

Milagro, which means "miracle" in Spanish, was dedicated to the lives of Miles Davis and Bill Graham, and was Santana's first album on the Polydor label after twenty-two years with Columbia Records. The album reached 102 in the Billboard 200.[4]

As of 2010, this is the band Santana's only studio album not owned by Sony Music Entertainment, the successor to Sony BMG, a company formed by the merger of Columbia's parent (the original) Sony Music Entertainment and BMG, the parent of Santana's current label Arista Records. The album is owned by Universal Music Group, which purchased Polydor's parent PolyGram in 1998.
