  • The main reason why I visit Oruro no doubt is to see the image of "the mommy of the tunnel", the sanctuary is a mystical place, where you can breathe positive energy, countless number of people reach this Sanctuary all year round and year after year, devotees dancers present faith offering to the patron saint of the pit on the occasion of the famous Carnival of Oruro. Excellent location for religious tourism.
