Summary for the landmark
In October 2013 I visited Las Lajas Sanctuary and my rating is 5/5.
It is a magic and very beautiful place. For sure, you will feel the kindness of their people and the magnificent landscape. First of all, this magnificent Church has been voted one of the Top Ten Original Churches in the world; it was built in 1916 in a canyon above the Guaitara River, many pilgrims visit this place where several miracles have occurred to sick people. There are thousands of thankful plaques in gratitude to the Virgin Mary who appeared to a woman who carried her deaf and dumb girl. Her daughter talked for first time saying that she was called by Mary and later on; a colorful image of the Virgin Mary appeared encrusted in a rock which is today the Main Altar. This is a Catholic Church filled with a very spiritual energy even for non Catholics. I had a great time at Las Lajas.
Tips: Visit the sanctuary when there are less people because you can't get up close and personal with anything inside the church.
