The hike to the Sanctuary was accompanied by our faithful guide - see local customs tip! The local women brought stones up this path to build this sanctuary as thanks to the Madonna for protection during the war. During the war a gun had been placed up here for attacks and if the villages made trouble or aided the resistance then the gun would have been turned on them.

From our hotel road juction we carrried on down to the roundabout onto the main road. Then turned right, look for a sign for the sanctuary marking the start of the road. This road soon turns to a gravel path, past some stables -don't be surprised if a dog joins you for the walk here!
