Was a very nice climb up, meditative and surprisingly, not tiring at all. With every step taken, truly felt like walking up the stairways to heaven, and finally being to see the Creator.

It a zone of silence, but we saw a bunch of nuns talking in there. I wanted to take a picture of them breaking the rules of Jesus.

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.

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.
