  • I must say I was dubious about this place as I'm not religious but the story and the statues are very moving. It is a very moving tribute to Jesus if you believe in him. Definitely worth a stop whilst...  more »
  • I have lived in the Texas Panhandle all of my life and driven by the cross since it's inception. The cross itself, though massive, is not the highlight or necessarily the reason for the stop. Over the...  more »

  • I'm not Christian, I'm actually Jewish. But it was really fun crossing country for the first time alone and to randomly come across this impressive monolith. A plaque on site claims it to be "the largest cross in the Western Hemisphere." It's 19 stories tall and visible from 20 miles away, but still shorter than 3 other crosses, one in Florida, Illinois, and finally Spain (technically Western Hemisphere). Even as a non Christian, I still really enjoyed this landmark. I'm sure those of the Christian faith will find this location very inspiring. Be sure to stop at this location if you're taking a long trip through Amarillo and Groom, Texas!
  • Truly inspirational. Our family loves watching for the first glimpse of this massive cross in the distance. Through the years more and more meaningful statues have been added. ✝️
  • Beautiful place.... excellent gift shopping -- all things Christian & Christmas......very nice.
  • It summarizes the story of Jesus Life and sacrifice for us and is dedicated to all innocent victims of abortion
  • It had a lot more than I was expecting. 14 stations, tomb replica, visitors center, statues etc. Worth the drive.
