Project Description

Santuario in Olón

The unique church on a rock 60 metres above the ocean is now the centre of Manlaralto parish. Padre Othmar realised the construction of the Maria shrine in 1984 with the help of local construction workers.

Since November 1990, when the Maria statue at the chapel cried tears of blood, the Santuario has become an attraction for locals, tourists, pilgrims and curious people alike.

The church is located directly behind Montañita, approx. 10 minutes by car from the Hazienda.
