#2 of 17 in Things to do in Junin de los Andes
Scores of religious locals and tourists flock to Via Christi every year. Previously known as a fly-fishing destination, Junin de los Andes has been given a new lease of life since architect and sculptor Alejandro Santana built the Christian theme park detailing the life of Jesus Christ through a modern lens. Sculptures dotted around the picturesque woodland area on the banks of the Chimehuin River portray scenes from Jesus’ life, including his crucifixion.

  • Art with social and political content. In addition to the religious, it calls on the genocide of the indigenous and the dictatorship. It is says the eyes of the author. There are guided tours. Orthodox refrain, is art! On the other hand, up the Hill, Cristo Luz is. A metal frame and giant glass that looks out onto the top of the Hill. More impressive than the last. By the same author (Alejandro Santana). Effort required physical reach, is worthwhile.

  • Good ride to see art and spirituality also. The ride is very long if you take the time to see each one of the stations of the Via. It is also advisable to carry water for the ride.

  • Arrived in Junin they recommended the promenade on the coast and the via Crucis, which is on a hill with statues at home station. We climbed and left us looking for a lady to ask for a payment of 100 pesos per person when in the Ministry of tourism of San Martin, they point out that 20 pesos leaves. We told her that we were 5 and had no money and you were not allowed to upload. The cost per single journey is the same. I do not recommend 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.
  • Parque Via Christi, Junin De Los Andes, Neuquen Argentina This was my very first video that I had made at the Parque Via Christi as soon as we finished visiting all 23 of the stations representing Jesus Christ's Life! It was a very nice, memorable, beautiful visit in which I enjoyed very, very much! I want to personally Thank Alejandro Santana the Sculpturer for Sharing All Of His Beautiful Works Of Art which are on Permanent Exhibit at the Parque Via Christi! I want to personally Thank Lidia Rodrigo for taking ME there and helping ME make my Youtube Video as well! Lastly, I want to personally Thank the people who work at Parque Via Christi for allowing ME to enter this Very Special Religious Place in which I left with many Good, Inspiring Memories back on Saturday, June 10, 2017.
