Beautiful and unique setting and sanctuary built into a cave. Surrounded by forest and tranquility. Gorgeous stonework. Good short day trip from Caravaca. A favorite with Spaniards with few foreign tourists.

The sanctuary offers services if you want them but even if your not religious it is a beautiful place to visit.the restaurant offers a wide menu but specialise in paellas. There are areas where you can bbq and a walk along the riverside.
