    Experience history and attend a candlelit procession where pilgrims march in homage to Mary every evening at 9pm as it has been done since 1872.

After the procession, there is a mass at the Grotto at 11pm.

    The Grotto: After Dark

    by Emmjai Updated May 27, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    During the day, the Grotto is a hive of activity, and usually very noisy. At night it is a different place, and a great spot to reflect on life, the Universe and the number 42! You don't have to believe in the apparitions, or even God to appreciate the calm and peace that is here.

    Then move onto one of the many cafes for a nightcap
