Absolute highlight of our visit to Asturias. The complex is compact with spectacular views in all directions. The sanctuary, situated in a cave with waterfalls gushing from the wall of the cliff beneath into crystal clear water, is an active pilgrimage and ceremony site. Votive...More

Did a quick stop here after a great twisty ride. Incredible place but very busy even at the end of September. So its difficult to find the peace and tranquility this place should offer.

We were kind of lost when we arrived because there were so many people parking wildly on the streets leading to the town. We finally found a spot and started asking people. It was practically in front of us the whole time. It's a chapel/sanctuary...More

Busloads of tourists, lots of cars, we decided to turn around as we do not like these overcrowded places at all.
