It is well worth the walk to the Chapel to visit. The architecture is beautiful and just amazing how it is built into the rock wall. We were treated to the chiming of bells while we were there and made the visit even more special.

The church is architecturally stunning since it is built into a rock face. It also has a black Madonna as well as several other interesting areas. The views are excellent.
