This renown She Shan Basilica has been reported the apparition of Holy Mother in the early 80s. The local community at that time witnessed the "said miracles " . For those interested, they may go there to explore the findings yourself !

The Catholic Church has always chosen high points, and this is no exception. The walk up is tiring but beautiful as it is through a forest. There is a bus all the way there from the city, or you can use the metro and bus.
