Pilgrims to the eyesight

This the  way to San Jose.... Ah sorry no, to Sainte Odile, holy patroness of Alsace. Born blind around 660 AD, she recovered eyesight through a miracle. What do you do then, normally??? As a daughter of the local duke, she founded a monastery on top of a mountain (mount St Odile nowadays).
So, should you have some eye trouble, this is the way to the monastery, 15 km up, as she is also the patroness of blind, or partially blind people. If you can find the way, of course.
