During this period, it is 713 pilgrims who were received, representing a daily average of 6 per day. However, the graph of weekly attendance below, more explicit, showing that in December, and January 1 to half of February, or during 11 weeks, there were between 19 to 34 pilgrims per week., averaging less than 4 per / day
