  • It Is A very large church, with a huge atrium too. I went on Sunday and wanted to see her without interrupting the mass, but I went three times in the lapse of 2 hours and there was always mass. What I observed is that when a mass ends, at 15 minutes begins another and with the large number of people who go, because there are many pilgrims who have a lot of faith in the Virgin of that church, are just coming out of a mass, and at the same time begin to enter the Next mass, so at the entrance is made a tremendous bottleneck. The Church is beautiful, without being extraordinary, although the altar, where the Virgin is very nice.
