Betania is the most famous place in Cúa, and the only one that attracts visitors from all over the world. Why ? it doesn't seem a very touristic place. Well, it's not .The people who come here are attracted to this place because Virgin Mary has appeared in Betania several times since the 70's. So catholics and non catholics come to see why is this place considered miraculous and mystical... they come to say thanks, to pray or .. (of course) looking for a miracle.
In our case, we went to Betania from Caracas via Charallave (one hour and a half approx.), with a big basket of flowers (see picture) to offer to Our Lady of Betania.

BUT, while we were approaching Betania the landscape turned suddenly green and rainforest like! (see picture) The change seemed magical, miraculous! and we couldn't stop thinking that it had to be a Virgin's miracle...
