I really enjoyed the visit to see the sanctuary and to learn about the history of this cave and area and its impact on Christian Spain.The scenery is absolutely stunning because it is so high up in the covadonga national park.

Be ready to climb stairs and fight the traffic looking were to park. It is an experience up the the mountains. Beautiful location. Overall, very clean, good facilities and thousands of people.
A very remote cathedral and chapel in the mountains. The chapel is beautifully situated in a cliff and you enter through a tunnel which is lit by candles. Must go for the mass which is very moving due to the atmosphere of a pulpit open to nature for the cliff side.

We just loved the place, its vibe, the culture, the history, and how well looked after this sanctuary is. In other countries you would get charged an entry fee to visit such a gem, not here. This is a great place to visit, especially on a sunny day.
I had been told about the place, but when you are there is really special! It fits more religious tourism but also fantastic for nature lovers! Indeed remarkable the location, and all the environment!

The place es overwhelming, there is no other way to describe it. Extremely beautiful and well kept , if you like religious monuments with a lot of history you cannot miss this.
This is an amazing place filled with a sense of peace. The surroundings are beautiful, majestic, holy and one must enter with total respect. We were fortunate enough to get very close to see the virgin of Covadonga. Very beautiful...
