  • I was a Sunday and the truth I have no regrets. There were very few people, the silence and the music were all that could be heard, the landscape and the purity of the air in the sanctuary filled with flowers and trees was something unique. When he was reaching the sanctuary where is the image I felt something hard to explain, a special energy that came from the outside. Very beautiful and very emotional.

  • I was not a Sabbath which is when this the sra, which imposes hands, but me referire road and the image. It can be in vehicle up to a few metres before and the truth that last stretch is quite steep, is not for everyone, and when you get to the grotto of the Virgin is that it is one sheet, there is no image.

  • Go to the hill where is venerated the Virgin Mary, for those who are devout, it is almost a necessity. There breathes respect, reflection and prayer at all times, silence is impressive, the atmosphere, the volunteers who guide the public and help people very attentive to everything and everyone and with enviable service vocation. We were in February, reason by which the Sra Marìa Livia was not, advise go in April and November train and live a unique experience.
