  • To me the new Church per se is not appreciated, more to my taste the old one that is coming from a door on the left side of the marble Church. The Madonna that is worshipped inside is very nice. How is priceless views and peace that can be enjoyed from here. I went to visit her on March 31 last day that you can come up with your own car since the day after I found the shuttle. The streets of this Summit and that lead to the Archaeological Park are very cute and very friendly people.

  • This shrine is something indescribable as to beauty and sacredness. I can't help but get excited when I go inside: is majestic and beautiful, a place of prayer that involves you. Outside there is a breathtaking view. To go up to the visit, it is necessary to leave the car in the parking lots and shuttle bus. Alternatively, you can do the walk but it's uphill, however steep. Near the sanctuary include the excavations with ancient mosaics.
