Somewhat noisy in here from all the pilgrims but a magnificent place to visit and pray. Often there are Masses to attend in this most beautiful crypt.

This is a place for quiet reflection and prayer. There are clear signs saying silence is to be observed. Very tranquil and serene to be closer to God

The Chapel at this Crypt struck me as a sacred place for quiet meditation and reflection by visitors.

This is a crypt and small chapel. It is a nice, quiet place to just sit for a bit and absorb the atmosphere. It is rather plain but still worth a quick look.
