  • Amazing place and location. I recommend going in the off-season or during the week. The weekend week is crowded. Numerous traffic jams and little parking. There are 5 car parks in the lower area, before arriving at the sanctuary. If you park here you can upload prior bus ticket to lakes or the basilica. Access to the cave is allowed. Into silence. No photos. The basilica is precious. It is open to the public.

  • Majestic at the same time that simple and austere place. Beautiful. Worth visiting as well as essential

  • The basilica and the Holy cave are amazing, but the setting is spectacular. If the visit accompanied it by the Lakes it is much more complete
