Definitely worth a visit and stroll around. It is worth researching first otherwise you could miss something!

The church and chapels were just beautiful. They were built right into the cliff face. It was super crowded, which made it almost impossible to feel the serenity of the place. Still, it is a worthwhile visit.

The basilica is quite beautiful. One of the chapels is built right into the cliff face. Such an amazing complex and well worth visiting.
