It is a modern building, advanced architecture, with multiple accesses. At the back is the ancient shrine, which was devoured by the flames and today shows the pieces it contained. If you like churches, it's a must.
Es un santuario muy moderno i bonito. Dentro pocas cosas asi como tienen que ser, no como hoy en dia todos llenos de rigueza. Un sitio estupendo, pero bueno cada persona tiene su gusto y puede opinar ... more »It is a very modern and beautiful sanctuary. Inside a few things as they have to be, not as today all full of squeath. A great site, but good each person has their taste and can have a different opinion.
Such a nice setting. A real sense of tranquility, beautiful views and great architecture. A must visit village only minutes of the main road.
Breathtaking location where old ( really really really old) meets new .. the architectural concept is great and the athmosphere is relaxing and peaceful... one star missing as there is no chance for English/ German speaking people to follow - there are quite some explaining posters/text but all in a language I don’t understand at all ( some copied papers would do great .. and it would be a Full Five Star)
