This winding path takes you through the stations of the cross in the most wonderful, shady park setting. There were groups praying but other than when we came across them, it was quiet. There are signs asking for silence. The path winds back and forth...More

This is a must see. A beautiful, escalating walk of the Stations of the Cross. Wonderful in the day and moving at night with a candlelit Stations of the cross. Makes for a nice walk, but much better with following a spiritual program.

Statues may not be of the highest artistic value, but the place makes it very appropriate to pray the way of cross in a special manner.

The way of the cross is an excellent time to pray the Stations of the Cross and reflect and unwind. To really enjoy it, take your time walking past each station as it switchbacks left and right. Each time you pass the center/stairs, you can...More

How peaceful!!! It is a wonderful area where you can pray the Stations of the Cross. On the top of hill, where you finish the via crucis, there is a huge cross. You have a lovely view from there as well.

Just across the road from the convent lies the via crucis. It is a calm place, where a person can either unwind & relax surrounded by trees. On the other hand, for those truly devoted, it evokes the required serenity to pray. From the top...More

Silence and ambience help the person to recollect him/herself and reflect on the Stations of the Cross. Until you arrive in front of a big Resurrected Christ.

Included in another review but it's a nice serene walk to the top. Despite what the signs say about not taking a drink, ignore them & take some water especially if elderly or have young children - just bring your rubish back down.

Are you concerned about getting to the top? Because there are switchbacks that make it ADA accessible and easier. Walking along the switchbacks allows you time to pray/see the Stations of the Cross and then you can walk the... More
