Resting atop a seaside cliff, O Sitio presents a collection of religious buildings and is a hugely popular site for pilgrims from around the globe. Hitch a ride on the funicular, or hike your way up to the summit, where you'll find medieval fortifications, 17th-century churches, and modern shrines. Wander the courtyards and plazas surrounded by ornate structures, basilicas, and statues. Feel free to stop in and pay your respects at one of the many chapels. Be sure to walk over to the edge of the rocky outcropping, which sits 110 m (361 ft) above the ocean for a view of the sea and coastline.
