Sanctuario Virgen de la Balma-Zorita

Sanctuario Virgen de la Balma-Zorita is an impressive place to visit and nice to combine with a visit to San Mateu or Morella.
It exists for the half out of a church (built in 1667) and the other half out of a cave, where, of course, a Maria apparition took place (otherwise it could not be a "sanctuario"). 
A shepherd was by a light beckoned to the cave and his paralyzed arm was healed. From that time on, the place is a pilgrimage where people go to redeemed of the devil or to cure diseases.
At the beginning of the cave is a small restaurant that is also a hotel. In the weekend is the sanctuario is open from 11.00 to 20.00, on weekdays, it is closed between the afternoon (between 13.00 and 16.30) and on Mondays the entire day.
