  • Excellent Sanctuary, which is worth visiting to contemplate the majesty of its particular statues and buildings in general. They keep a supposed relic of John Paul II (a drop of blood), although you have to be very believer to get to see it (it is in a container and with the naked eye nothing is seen). Keep in mind that the foggy days visibility is reduced to 10 meters.

  • We could not enjoy the views of the site as it deserved due to the heavy rain that touched us, I think the environment can be wonderful, the facade is super nice but the interior is rather simple. Views there was no mist. Let us say that the most peculiar thing is the relic of John Paul II, and that the Pope was in his day in this sanctuary. People with reduced mobility can bypass the crypt, which contributes little beyond a huge hall where there are several passages that they call mysteries. You can access a car park almost at the same level of the church. The head of tourism is super friendly, she was helping us with routes throughout the north of Portugal.

  • Beautiful sanctuary at the top of a mountain. Prepare yourself for a beautiful view and remember to park close to the place or you will get tired from walking so much! Enjoy!
  • So vintage haha. It is a very beautiful and peaceful place to go and visit. You're surely taking good photos there!
