  • A long walks and if not interested in too the art and the religion is becomes boring, the entry I seemed to face. People with limitations refrain from walking on a slope... If is made without guide lacks in sense.

  • The place, I loved what is good is that although the subject dealing with religious can relate it to problems of social, economic, and ethnic. I recommend making the guided tour because they explain the significance of each statue and make you understand that it is not only religious. Note the timetable of visits because today we went to the morning but he had already started a 1 hour ago and we prefer to return in the afternoon to have it complete.

  • a beautiful activity both for believers and for those who like art, is a more or less 2 hours walk

  • 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.
