  • Not the Sanctuary but by the sight of Viana, if you don't have Vertigo climb to the dome, and is even more impressive, the same photographer with your machine 100 years ago, no known Viana without this increase, the elevator, near the hospital, preferably, very beautiful.

  • A majestic shrine, despite recent. The sights of the city, worth a climb to mount. Not to be missed.
