Location had parking P5 and public toilets P5 also. Holy Door is located at left side of Church. Lighting of candles P2 each. Well maintained. I loved the old tile floors. Worth visiting.

The church is nice. The retablo is gloriously beautiful. When we came there was a visiting image of the Blessed Virgin. Many groups came to make a pilgrimage. Remember to bring change to use the toilet
