Nice place to take pictures and to have great views of the port and the city. The church is on the top of the place and you can access by elevator or the 6 floors stairways.

Yes, you can drive the car all the way up to the basilica. In addition to a relatively small common parking, there is one even smaller parking for disabled persons. The later one gives easier access.
