In this city which has more than 30 churches, there is a small church , ducked in the centre of the gate at the top.

Obvious from outside but little entrance door just inside Old Town not at all obvious but worth looking for and climbing steps inside to this place which has a special atmosphere and is very beautiful. On way out, step right into the church, which is also lovely, and again entrance is not obvious.

The church and its shrine are located at the top of a street that runs uphill through the old city centre. I saw pilgrims heading for the shrine climbing the stone staircase on their knees as a sign of humility. It is one of th oldest churches in the city and famed for the vast number of thanks tokens pinned to the walls by pilgrims whose prayers have been answered.

This sight is located in old town, near one of the gates on the exit from this central area. You just go through the gates, rise your head up, and see the icon of Maria and Jesus. If you are in the old town, you can see it, it is just 3 minutes walking by foot. But I was not impressed at all.
