The special place and the design make you dig deep into yourself and pray, relax and meditate. Use to be right next to the highway, now you must turn a slight way to enter. I recommend visiting.

My 2 young daughters and I went to the 10am Sunday mass. I was astounded by the beauty and magnificence of the church location and the wonderfully spoken young priest (Spanish only). The view over Olon was breathtaking.

Just off the Ruta Del Sol between Montanita and Olon perched on a hilltop rock, with cliffside bluffs is this open sanctuary with spectacular views, fresh breezes, and tranquility. An excellent stop for reflection and worship.
