Favorite thing: In general when visiting a religious site you expect that the impressive things will be found in the architecture of the church, basilica or cathedral, but here at Bom Jesus the church, while nice, is simple and small, not overpowering at all. Here the most impressive by far are the approach stairs, called the "Sacred Way", charging up the mountain toward the church at the top. Along the way you find fountains and statues, symbolizing the virtues, the senses and the wounds of Jesus. All in all a very impressive work of art.
