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

  • The statues show the like of Christ. The gentle walk is up a hill thru forest, so is shady on a sunny day.  more »
  • It is an interesting walk and the art is different. Unusual to find in this part of the world. Worth a visit.  more »
  • Anyone could imagine that it will be a Via Crucis, how many there. Well... I have to say that this is a theme park about the life of JESUS and even though it includes the Via Crucis, is a great work of art and a call to reflection on the life Christian for those who visit it.

  • It is a visit that admits a wide spectrum of looks: admirable from the religious, anthropological point of view, from the infrastructure and architecture, from a walk in a natural environment. If it is desired to learn and to know the work from the religious, its greater symbolic potential, it is suggested to make the visit with guide.
  • A wonderful and magical place that you can´t miss. Perfect to enjoy art and nature.

  • You're or not Catholic is beautiful! Different from everything, is not a proper viacrusis. The idea of the architect was definitely from another point of view. I recommend not to visit in winter. With the ice it is very difficult to walk up to footwear. And the latest stations tend to be closed.

  • Excellent place to visit. Going around it is like making a spiritual retreat. Every Christian should know it, but it is also very nice for the public in general.
