  • To my I loved the place, I don't know if it is because I am Catholic and very devoted to the Virgin Mary, but it seems to me that it is a place where you can breathe peace and tranquility. I was in February and there were no rows or many people was then even more enjoyable. You can enter and pray while you want or just appreciate the House and different gifts that have made the potatoes to this place. Outside there are places where you can light a candle and leave it there there is a source where you can wash your hands and a place where you can leave a paper with your thanks or requests I left fascinated, I think a visit not to be missed
