Loved the mosaics around the world. Felt emotional when we got to see the cave and the line wasn't that long compared to the lines in Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Gorgeous church upstairs too.

This is where Mary had lived, and received the visit from the angle. Very beautiful. Remember to go to visit the grotto while there as you could very easily miss it. Very bust place, but try to block out the noise and people.
