The enthronement of the image of the Virgin of the Great Valley was placed in December of 1972 and, since then, the visits have not stopped growing.
On the side of the road and also of the Atuel river, the monument of the Virgin of the Great Valley has been erected, which once a year, in November, concentrates a pilgrimage of more than ten thousand people.
The Virgen del Valle Grande is located 30 kilometers from the capital of San Rafael.
The pilgrimage to the Virgin of the Great Valley, which will bear the image of Our Lady of Lourdes, co-patron of the diocese, will arrive at midnight at the shrine, where the mass will be celebrated, which will be the only one of the weekend in the sanctuary.
A walk is made from the parish of San Antonio de Padua, in Balloffet avenue 586 to the Predio de la Virgen where the mass is celebrated.
This celebration takes place on the first weekend of the month of December.
