  • Inside a cave, and on a great cut, sits this sanctuary, recently remodelled, with the original Chapel of the Virgin of la Balma once spoke of healing of "possessed", is a curious place. It has cafeteria and restaurant, very recomandables.

  • Impressive monastery, nailed to the rock, with a very large Hermitage, all inside the cave, in which in addition there is a hospice, and a fantastic restaurant. Breath taking views.

  • This small temple of medieval origin according to the legend by a Marian apparition to a shepherd in the cave where the shrine stands catches the eye from the road leading along the river Bergantes from Zorita to Mas de las Matas. As suspended vertical wall of stone can be seen its small belfry and a wall with windows, which prolongs the rock. From up close the first occurring shortly before arriving at the venue itself is a shrine of 4 columns that opened it protects and a cruise ship ornament. Shortly before arriving at the sanctuary there is a small Esplanade at the foot of the same where you can park free. Once on the premises, with the head always upwards, on the huge wall of rock eroded by wind and water are differentiated construction also leverages the hollows and which corresponds to bar, restaurant and rooms, in style rustic and perfectly restored supported on tall stone columns and arches of stones. For this area, where climbing stairs of boulders and stone ranging through a couple of rooms where are photos of the process of restoration carried out in all public, both exterior and interior. After these rooms appear a kind of Hall of rock, with a small wall of containment to prevent falls coming through the holes of the rock cave that makes up the sanctuary. Inside sounds sacred music and images of the Virgin, San Blas, San Antonio Abad and other small exposed. Throughout the visit not I found nobody, only cartels seeking to maintain the cleanliness and order in place warning is monitored all by closed-circuit video cameras. Everything about the miraculous trickery of this place and its Virgin did not interest me, but rather as had gotten build the enclosure, without that it would fall, as that seems to be dug in the rock, when actually take advantage of the gaps that already had. Note that with the restoration have tried to prevent landslides and falling stones, and it has left everything really quite splendid, except the blackened color from the cave by the amount of candles, smoke and fire that you suffered the place. A paragraph and place on high, a curious monument in the middle of nature.

The Hotel is breathtaking with its rooms build into the rocks. The menues are great with a big variety an a stunning vieuw over the valley. For us it's a location with great spirituallity. We will keep on coming year after year. Saludos a Jose
  • Amazing place. If you don't like heights, I do not recommend this site. Restaurant that make very good meals, is also cheap and put you much. The sanctuary is embedded in the mountain. Located to passing Zorita

  • First of all, very nice site, food in general also have a menu very varied, unique garrafal failure who have had has been that desserts were "very home", there was no letter to choose, and in the account they wanted to charge 25 euro more for something to ent Raba in the menu, that is an error but insignificant them has failed much manners, great lack of education for its part! Thank you, but there will be one next!
