Directions to Garabandal


Garabandal is located in the north west of Spain about three hours drive from the French border town of Irun. It is an hour and fifteen minutes drive south of Santander (80.6 km), a substantial coastal city where the Bishop of the diocese resides. (See Michelin map 572 Regional Espana).Garabandal is located 15 miles inland from the Cantabrian coast some 35 miles (50 miles by car because of the winding roads) west by southwest of Santander. Santander is an important port and because of its beautiful, expansive beaches and temperate summer climate, a vacation favourite for Spaniards. It is 250 miles straight north of Madrid and 140 miles west of the nearest port of entry from France, Hendaye-Irun.


From Madrid it is a day drive. The shorter route to Garabandal is via Burgos, Corconte, Reinosa, Cabuerniga, Puentenansa and Cosio. The longer but better route is via Burgos, Vargas, Torrelavega, Cabezon de la Sal, Cabuerniga, Puentenansa and Cosio. Both routes are good. The road from Puentenansa to Cosio is undergoing major upgrading.

From Santander it is about an hour drive to Cosio. The freeway south is excellent. You take the turnoff at Pesues to Puentenansa and on to Garabandal, or you can turn off earlier to Cabezon de la Sal and travel the mountain route.

UPDATE: There is four-lane freeway now from the French border to just east of Cabezon. The road from Cabueriga to Puentenansa is now wider and better for a safer, easier and faster trip.

TAXIS: Available in all cities and even in the smaller villages. Ask anyone.


From Madrid, catch the RENFE train at Chamartin station to Santander (about five hours). Book first class for more comfortable seating. Hotel Chamartin (good accommodation) is next to the train station.

From Santander catch the FEVE train to Cabezon de la Sal. This train departs every hour from 6.15 am to 20.15 pm and takes about one hour at a cost of 2.50 Euros. Take a taxi to Garabandal, about a half hour drive at a cost of 40 Euros. If none available at the station, telephone Jose on 609 442210.


The airport, located 5 kilometres to the east of Santander city centre, has domestic flights connecting Santander with Barcelona and Madrid and Ryanair International flights from London Stansted, Rome-Ciampino and Frankfurt-Hahn.

NB As Ryanair is a low cost budget airline, it is important to be aware of their strict baggage regulations. Each passenger is allowed free of charge, one piece of cabin baggage weighing no more than 10 kg with maximum dimensions of 55cm x 40cm x 20cm. If your total baggage does not meet these guidelines, then refer to www.ryanair. com to check on their strict terms and conditions of travel for carrying your baggage in the aircraft hold.

Additionally, Bilbao Airport, situated about 110 kms from Santander, operates international flights to and from the main European capitals. There are buses and trains to and from Bilbao Airport to the city centre, where there is a coach service to Santander.


There is a permanent bus service which connects Santander airport with the city centre bus station every 30 minutes. The bus ticket costs approximately 1.6 Euros.

Buses stop at Irun to Galicia, Bilbao, Santander and San Vicente de la Barquera (near Pesues). Buses also leave from Madrid going to Santander. Buses leave from Cabezon connecting with trains from Santander and stops at Cosio just three miles from Garabandal. Check with bus company: Madrid - 91 745 63 00 , Santander: 942 22 53 18 or


Brittany Ferries, a French line, has the Plymouth, England, to Santander run. A 700 passenger, 170 car boat with cabins leaves Plymouth on certain days. Check with your travel agent or web site

Miracle Date

Miracle Date

Date of the Miracle in Garabandal

Only Conchita knows the date of the Miracle in Garabandal. People have been speculating about the date for many years. There have been several times when thousands of pilgrims have come to Garabandal on a certain date, believing that the Miracle was on that day. But that is NOT what Our Lady wants from us. She specifically told Conchita to reveal the date only 8 days in advance. She did this for a reason. That is because it is more important to follow Her messages and live the lives Our Lord wants us to live: prayer, penance, frequent confession, daily Mass and Holy Communion, daily rosary, visiting the Blessed Sacrament, prayer for priests, wearing the scapular, etc. Whether the Warning and Miracle happen today or tomorrow should not be a concern. If Our Lord wants you to be in Garabandal for the Miracle, you will be there. In the meantime, it's best to concentrate on doing what He wants us to do and trying to be what He wants us to be.

The Village Church

The Village Church (pictures)

The village church of Garabandal 35 years ago.
In the latter part of 1988, Joey Lomangino, received a request from Garabandal village pastor, Father Juan Gonzalez, for funds to finance the installation of a new floor in the church and to reinforce buttressed at the rear of the structure. The repairs were made possible by the generosity of many people and this is how the church appears today.
Additional buttresses were needed to support the rear wall of the church.
Inside the courtyard one sees the two new doors, a new roof over the portico and new support columns.
One thing did not change -- the tabernacle in the village church of Garabandal with its beautiful symbol of the pelican feeding its young with its own blood symbolizing the Holy Eucharist where Christ feeds His own with His body and blood.
The new floor is made of wood at the center and inlaid stone at the sides. The wood is a special hardwood imported from Africa.
The sanctary has a new altar and new stone floor.
The view from the balcony at the rear of the church.
New stonework graces the portico and the entire courtyard. Concrete planters have also been added.
The new gate serves as a reminder to those passing through it that they are on holy ground. It also keeps young children from playing in the courtyard and disturbing people inside the church who are trying to pray.
