Scores of religious locals and tourists flock to Via Christi every year.

  • You can not miss it. But beyond the religious beliefs of each one. It is a work of art with the history of the place and space.

  • The place is built on different stations where are counted, both sculptures as information posters, the via crusis and the mapuche culture, we were almost 45 minutes to visit all stations without a guide, when you come to the cross, one can see all Junín of andes and also construction that are ending of Christ on the Hill. Very interesting attraction in junin.

  • Park Via Christi: a monumental effort of different actors in the community, with the figure of the architect. Alejandro Santana as face of the work, will be carrying forward the realization of this sculpture park. Apart from the religious and socio-political orientation that holds, who admire the good art can not miss it. Very strong in eloquent messages which may not please, it is an eloquent critique of all system or regime deshumanice and put any value above the human being as such. Every detail is premeditated and a good guide of site makes a difference in their interpretation. I urge from my humble position the guides in the area, to develop professionally through a deep internalization in this regard. And I am sure that subsequent to the mercy stations shed a light blanket of hope, recovering the Christian message of peace and harmony of human beings. Technical details: some physical demand to complete the journey. Will have to think about future visitors with reduced mobility (electric carts?)

  • It is a visit that supports a broad spectrum of looks: admirable from the religious point of view, the infrastructure and architecture, from a walk in a natural environment. If you want to learn and know the work from the religious, its most symbolic potential, suggested the visit with guide.
