  • It was opened on January 10, 1943 and is one of the most visited sites in Holy week. It also has sculptures, a chapel and a replica of the Virgin of Lourdes. Another important point to visit in Tandil.

  • Very well done. Stations of the cross among the lush trees gives you peace and curiosity. And the imposing cross atop an imposing.

  • One of my favorite places. I have visited many times and is always a pleasure to be in place. For my spouse, it was his first visit and can't wait to return. More signs indicating how to make the journey of the cross because we saw many people enter upside down would miss.

  • Beautiful religious tour to review the stations of the cross de Jesucristo. Place of tranquility, serenity and shady forest. Not to be missed in Tandil.
