  • It is a place for the spirit. Good rubble and not so far away from the asphalt road. They will be about 3 km. From the parking lot is not more than 400 meters.

  • It is a ride that we always do when we go to the baths, although we are not asking, it is an area with so much confidence that it makes you feel good. I do not share the majority of the writings that are along the way but that good energy, feels feels. See people ranging from the entrance to the Grotto kneeling gives the feeling that something good happened and I think that it is an incentive for many. You can see people meditating and with a device to measure up to the energía(aprendí algo nuevo también) faith moves mountains. You should go. You can visit at any time, told me that going people at night also.

  • To reach the entrance about 3000mts of gravel in good condition must travel from the paved road and then walk other approximate to the Grotto road 600mts has posters with the teachings of Padre Pio. Already in the cave the silence the tranquility of nature in the place creates an environment where peace is breathed
