  • Must be explored in order to understand its Majesty, and you can enjoy a unique view especially the sunset

  • I think that few places can be so attractive from the spiritual point of view; and I think everyone, believers and non-believers are in these places the symbol of peace, purity of spirit, of being in prayer; There you acknowledge that someone was there years and years ago, before you!

  • Beatiful. Peaceful. Spiritual. Love this place. It call for meditation and reconciliation with yourself and God. The whole complex is worth a visit of more than one day. I'll be back because it's worthy.
  • This small village is astonishingly beautiful. You can feel the magic. I only stayed for a day and it was not enough :(
