  • I went to the shrine on July 26 and found the trip very well organised. in the parking lot waiting for us a comfortable shuttle bus that takes us out of where we could admire the old sanctuary from which you could see breathtaking views over the Bay below and the new sanctuary. I like most the old sanctuary. excellent organization and cleanliness and the Black Madonna is beautiful
