We had gone to baby beach and on the way home we took a little side trip to check out the Grotto. The Grotto was built with in a cave and is set up for mass and pilgrimages. We walked around and took some pictures. there was another cave and alter set-up across the road. There was no one there when we stopped which actually made it quite and peaceful. We did a see a some wild goats walking around which were nice to see. If you have car and want to get out of the beach area or are in the San Nicolas area it is worth a stop to see the area and take some pictures.

The Lourdes Grotto is a nice place to stop and take a couple of pictures and then continue your way. It's built in a stone wall and you can see and access it directly from the road. If you take the drive don't blink or you might miss it :-)

This is the best of the caves.
Take a torch if you have one, but you can get by without one.
A few bats were flapping about, which added to the atmosphere. best when no one else is about as too many people spoil the tranquility.

This is not nearly as elegant as say the Alta Vista Chapel. This is a small shrine set up in a cave-ish formation. Clearly it was created with a respect and love of the Virgin Mary, and as such, would have significance to those visiting to pay homage, say a prayer, make a donation. I would not called it a 'must see' otherwise. It is almost impossible to find, as there are NO street markings at all. We were lucky enough to find a lotto salesperson that gave us directions, and even then, I almost drove by as there are NO parking lots...or even street parking.. You just pull over. If you have a car and are otherwise in San Nicolas, then give it a try...otherwise, hit the Alta Vista Chapel.
