  • It's definitely a ride with a religious tinge, and for which likes can be very exciting. The stations of the via crucis are very well represented in sculptures of stone under a thick forest of eucaluptus

  • Definitely coming in Tandil cannot fail to make a cross (very slight) until this monument and maybe enjoy the area behind that may well as picnic area.

  • It has a good vantage point of the city. If you are into religion then that's a plus.
  • Very nice tour. Although this rather neglected and people who go nor helps to maintain cleanliness. They throw bottles and trash on either side. Something to keep in mind for older persons is to rise accompanied and athletic shoes as much as possible. There are many raised stones and slabs patinozas. When you reach the top the Christ meets a churchyard to flip it and pray you (believers). From there begins the descent by stairs to the base. A very nice scenery!

  • The truth is that the place is very neglected, statues are not of good quality (a few lumps are painted cement) and half broken. It only interesting are all the rosaries hung in the rail of the cross and them plates of thanks. Only if you have no other thing to do.
