The Milk Grotto is claimed to be where Christ was fed  as the holy family paused after the birth. Claims of milk related miracles are documented here. The church is lovely and peaceful. Its a short walk form the Nativity Church and a respite

The grotto is quite pretty and when we arrived at around 12:00 on a Thursday we were the only people there. The visit took 10 minutes or so. The grotto was very peaceful.
