an easy to find religious venue. there are two grottos, one on each side of the road. watch for traffic as you cross the road. a good place to say a few peaceful words of worship. when we stopped it was late in the day. quite possible it could get busy on the more religious observances.

Wow , down a dusty late de palm took us, then a grotto both sides of the road. Beautiful, would love to go at night when it's all lit up.

We stopped here on the way to another destination. It was very nice really. You walk up the steps and go inside the area and you see lit candles and pictures of loved ones. It's really worth the stop, if you like this kind of thing. But try to do every little thing possible when we are here.

What a shame...a potential honor to our lady, and it was dirty, unkempt, and tacky. Also not that easy to find. Could be a inspiring little stop, but instead, it was depressing.

Interesting shrine away from the hub bub of Orangestaad. A nice place to retreat to for a little spirituality.

Yes, it had a special meaning to me and obviously to the Arubians who built it. It's a lovely spot as your tour the island. It's peaceful and serene and a nice place for reflection. It's not a destination per se but do stop and reflect for a moment if you're in the area.

Found only by accident on a road trip Worth a short visit and to take pictures If religious time for quiet reflection and prayer Wouldn't go out of way to find as would be disappointed

We went there on a tour and it would mean something to a Catholic. There were statues and I am sure it means something very deeply to a religious person
