Walking in Medjugorje

Dear fellow travellers,

I am planning to bring my mother to visit the pilgrim site of Medjugorje in August this year. However, she has problem to walk too much.

I read that there is a walk of 20 minutes required to reach the St. James church. Is it difficult walk (eg. going up the hill, non-paved ways, etc). Is there a way to avoid the walk and take shuttle bus to the church?

Thanks in advance for the feedback.

The church is very accessible, but the walk up Apparition Hill will be difficult for her,

There are plenty of taxi cabs that are reasonable, I believe it is about $6.00 American, Any where you want to go in town. Yes, cross hill and apparition hill will be difficult but there are things near the church that are accesible that she can visit.

There is a parking lot right by the church so it won't be difficult to get to the church. All roads are very busy but paved so it will not be difficult to get to the church.

St James church is in the middle of the village. The amount of time it takes to walk to the church will depend on where you are staying in Medjugorje - you might only be a 5 minute walk away, or you could be a 20/30 minute walk.

As your mother has difficulty walking, I do not think she will be able to climb up Apparition Hill, which is not paved, and definitely not up Cross Mountain.

The best that I think she would be able to achieve, would be to get to the base of both of these places.

There are plenty of taxis available and they have a standard fare of €5, for one to four persons, for any journey within the village and to Apparition Hill and Cross Mountain.

If you stay in a hotel in town it shouldn't be too difficult. I would recommemnd a wheelchair if you can manage.
