A beautiful place with a breathtaking view. If you are in need for some silence and being alone with yourself, this is the place to go. You can sense the spirituality all around this place. It is amazing. Don't miss it.

You can take the free shuttle bus from the car park but a walk up to the top through the woods will make you sweat and then you are rewarded with a good view over the city. As for the religious side of it, it's ridiculous, only for firm believers

Went several times with friends tat didn't know the place. It is a religious place with a very good view of the city of Salta and surroundings. Was a hike of about an hour going up, less coming down in a forest trail at about 1500 meters altitude. Now there are parking places much nearer with a good road so... More

the hike up is beautiful, and Saturdays is when thousands of people get up to be blessed. The view of Salta from the top is outstanding.

Well worth the walk up if you are able. It's not too tough but does take 45mins-1 hr. I went mid week so it was very quiet and peaceful when you got to the top. No queues to enter the chapel and I met nobody on the walk up or down the trail. Felt totally in the wilderness. Was well... More

I'm not a religious person and we went in the middle of the week. We were told on Saturdays, there are 1000's of people there. It is a good short very steep hike for the tiny parking lot to the chapel area. Must be quite. Very clean and well kept gardens. The view is amazing on all sides. Massive amounts... More

Great energy, Great Gardens, Great view, Great beautiful way to get there, close to down town. Actualy is good to go on saturdays to see the ceremony but if you want to go when there is not crowed, any other day is possible also.

we walked up since there was a long line in the bus. it was a saturday but the lady wasn't there. the climb up prepares you to the atmosphere you'll experience, if you want to. some of us climbed praying while others were just climbing up as an excercise. it's an overall spiritual experience no matter what you believe in.

I joined my friend who is religious and we took a cab to within 400 metres or so of where the chapel is where the Virgin Mary is said to have appeared. My friend was terribly emotional when entering the chapel. on saturdays, the woman who saw the vision of Mary is at the site and hundeds of believers line... More
