Santa Faz Monastery
This unassuming monastery holds a prominent place in the hearts of the faithful. The Vatican has confirmed that a piece of cloth preserved here is part of the veil used by St. Veronica to wipe blood from the face of Jesus. (Santa Faz literally means "holy face.") This small relic inspires a pilgrimage every spring when thousands make the five-kilometer trek from Alicante to pay homage.
