    The cave of Padre Pio is located within Estancia Aurora, according to information (internet) she's energized, miracles and healings are attributed to the site and to the Saint. It is not a tourist attraction, is a cult, a simple construction in the middle of a cattle ranch, has a line of poles with thank-you cards and Psalms along the path between the gate and the cave (about 150 m), you get in and get out without being harassed. If you are worth researching the religious days of festivities and pilgrimages to the site. If you are curious for ufology, find out the history of Estancia Aurora, site of several appearances, already visited by Astronaut Neil Armstrong. among other famous. Don't be alarmed if your watch freak and reschedule, the site is a magnetic Center and so that's to be expected.

    It is a place very popular with devout people. I found a small grotto built in the middle of a field, fail to understand the position into a ravine, either because a site so busy on rainy days becomes an impossible to walk, Marsh as believer or not should recognize that it is a tourist attraction.
