  • I was there during a tour of religious tourism. visit to the sanctuary of the Dr José Gregorio Hernández in Isnotu, Trujillo State. Apart from the experience of climbing inside the great image of the Virgen de la Paz by stairs (there are elevator that sometimes work) there's another novelty, as if ride but is worthwhile. You can lean pr "eyes" of the image and see Lake Maracaibo if weather permitting. About dl site are the everlasting food stalls where you can acedder to food nothing out of the ordinary. Well as experience of pilgrimage is worthwhile. There are brave like us who walk up the hill where is located the image and good is assumed as part of the "sacrifice". In any case, any tourist can go and enjoy if the time is in favour of a pleasant climate and an interesting view for those who come from the city

  • The monument is beautiful. But, although there were sufficient personnel, none took interest guide us or tell us the origin and the importance that has such building to the Catholic population and the faith of the people... The lift is idle. ..
