  • Junín de los Andes has explored since many years the religious tourism, and Via Christi is sign of that. It portrays under the gaze of various artists not only the stations of the cross, but also the ways of living of human beings. It is just one side of the city, on a steep hill, within which meander the different stations, to reach the Summit, surmounted by a large cross, from which can be seen throughout the city. An interesting attraction, but that requires some time to navigate it full.

  • We enjoyed a wonderful evening with my family visiting the via christi. From the starting point, it took us an hour and a half on the tour. Very accessible ta q it costs 60 pesos and 11 minors do not pay. To have in account, some parts are steep, there are some places to rest. The place is under construction, but they surprised me so much sculptures as the place and the way where you are. Highly recommended.

  • Via Christis or Christ's way is a theme park that is located in len the Cerro de la Cruz, of the city of Junín de los Andes. It has 23 sculptures combining moments of the life of Jesus and to translate into works of art with a marked fisonomista tendency of native peoples who inhabited these lands (Mapuche and Mapuche). Made by the sculptor Alejandro Santana taking the ideas of heliocentrism of the ancient cultures with the cult nature and the lives of two recognized blessed as are Laura Vicuña and Ceferino Namuncurá, both natives of this region, bear witness to the mixture of beliefs and faith of the ancient and the new inhabitants of these lands. The place is easily accessible by car or walking, the Park offers guides and the facilities are optimal for an afternoon in a nice and quiet place. It is a must see!

  • 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.
