This is commonly known as the Nun's Breast because the shape so closely resembles the cake of the same name. As a religious centre, the Shrine is what you would expect, no facilities here, unless you want to light a candle. If thinking of a...More

For me it's always a nostalgic homecoming to see the little church on top of the hill. I know I'm home. My mind goes back to seeing the worshipers and the procession going up the incline of the hill during Holy Days before they built...More
