  • Well, I am son and neighbor of Andújar, which logically I conditions, but I will try to be as objective as possible. Obviously it is a must-see, and not without some controversy, I think without sense understanding as a souvenir of a historical fact, the maintenance of certain vestiges of the civil war, such as the cemetery, (by some quite neglected, not to say almost forgotten). The beautiful location, especially in spring and autumn, since cojes Andújar to Puertollano road, and which is becoming more beautiful, the more you come to the site of the shrine. Forced stop, Las Viñas, the new location, area and the Encinarejo reservoir. In certain places you can give the feeling of neglect or some dirt, but also depends on the time that you go. Also according to the days you choose you can find from almost only on a particular day (here I recommend that to enter the sanctuary, you will find completely dark, you spend a eurillo in the little machine that says "illuminates the sanctuary, or something like that"), until a Sunday with mass of brotherhoods or penalties romera in which privilege a Sung mass usually by a choir romero , and enough hustle and bustle. I recommend, if your physical condition does not prevent it you, you upload the road walk, since it is a quasi misica experience, and that will make you see in detail everything that surrounds the Basilica-sanctuary. A few years ago they have restored the parador course annex, and they have turned it into a beautiful Inn, where you can stay. There are also other hotel establishments in the area. You take your time to observe the inside of the beautiful sanctuary, which without being overly dramatic, it has details that you will like. Then by an enclosed entry open for certain hours a day (have to learn to not be disappointed then), you can upload to the dressing room where reigns the beautiful image of the Virgen de la Cabeza, and if you're devout you can pray there same. During the long Hall to go over to the dressing room, can see a lot of pictures with images of the Virgin of all parts of the world, and at the end a small museum, everything worth seeing with peace of mind. When you leave the dressing room also you can enter the inner courtyard which recreates the place of the apparition of the Virgin to the Shepherd of Colomera, and finally, out you can buy souvenirs of the place, that community exposes trinitria, Regent of that place, a detail that you should not ignore, we stop for lunch on the way back, at any of the restaurants that are along the road all of good quality and set in the beautiful Sierra de Andújar. In short, a place of worship and rich landscape, which can evoke different feelings, but that insurance does not leave you indifferent.

  • It was Monday, the surroundings were very dirty, closed, long rust, disappointing. Candles must buy them in a machine, such as soft drinks, showing little confidence in visitors. Once inside there was darkness, just it was nothing. We were absolutely alone, it was sad... The image was in a dressing room, too far away to see it well we had to use the zoom of the camera. It was an illusion that we had and we deliver it. However, the sanctuaries that we have visited, and they are many, it has been the most disappointing. If we compare it with the environment, cleaning, neatness, light, music, the proximity of the image, with the of the patron saint of my La Virgen de la Sierra city, for example, the result is negative. Regardless of the fervor that has in one way or another, that this aspect is not theme appropriate in this case. Between now and Aug. 11, plenary indulgence, there is much work to be done...

  • Take my friend for the first time that it learned of the sanctuary and the image of the Virgen de la Cabeza, had seen him on tv, I am overwhelmed, the site, the peace and quiet that sit there, we were lucky that there was no one and we could be in the single Chamber. It was very special, I am regular but each time is different
