Visit Santuario de la Virgen de Lourdes, a religious site with diverse architecture and a rich history. Just a small shrine to the Virgin Mary in the early 1920s, the site grew with the addition of a small chapel in 1926. When the chapel's size was deemed insufficient for the number of pilgrims arriving at the site, the modern amphitheater-style church was built. See the difference in scale and architecture between the two main buildings, and the number of statues of the Virgin Mary that believers ask for blessings.

  • I must confess that the story of who officiating of guide, was losing it leaving me carried away by what all this space inspires. The simplicity of the "old chapel", the magnificence of the new "sanctuary" and particular sweetness of the image of "The Virgin who looks at you", give to this place, that atmosphere full of emotions.

  • It is a sanctuary where two churches. The former being the more small which retains all the original infrastructure in all aspects with a characteristic of many plaques of thanks to the Virgin of Lourdes. The Church new is a ship with a very impressive structure and capacity of people. All 11 days of every month is dedicated to the Virgin and on 11 February of each year is the patronal feast of the Virgin of Lourdes.
