Gruta de los Panuelos, Sierra de los Padres

  • It should go as part of the walk forced by the sierras, and sit down and drink a mate. None of the other world, but nor is it bad.

  • In the grotto of the handkerchiefs you'll find at the beginning craftsmen, a path that is not suitable for people with different abilities by the type of terrain. The Grotto is {a in a place with beautiful views. I highly recommend it.

  • A magical place, walking between stones in the shadow. The believer for one place of worship. Within the District of Sierra de los Padres. Paved road. A small place with artisans.

  • Do cute place for photos, ask because people leave both handkerchiefs? that meant? history says that once a lady went and asked the Virgin that she wanted to get pregnant, I leave tied a handkerchief and went. Shortly after the woman could get pregnant and they attributed this miracle to the Virgin. From that fact people approaching to ask for miracles

  • The geographical location is very beautiful. The rock formations and the roots of the trees to the ground, give a magical air to walk. The artisan jobs are few but neat and picturesque. At one point there is a cave with a Virgin, where it is tradition to tie scarves asking good wishes. It is surprising the amount of colored scarves, but it seems that many of the tourists who flock to the place do not maintain it in good clean condition. The point more negative is the fact of not having enabled public baths. The chapel of the scarves from my point of view, has its good side and its bad side. Since the beautiful natural place looks pretty gradient with offerings, although it is something to see.
