This monument consists of a forested path through a pine forest on the hillside above Santa Maria Della Grazie. There are 16 sculptures positioned in this area, 14 coinciding with the Stations of the Cross, at the bottom is Padre Pio, atop the hill and 244 steps is Risen Christ. There is also a Madonna and child in Marble. It was inaugurated in 1981

There are a load of steps to climb but well worth the effort. It was very meditative and relaxing which surprised me because it was so high. I truly felt a sent of wellbeing and the view was breathtaking. My children enjoyed the climb too and considering there are a fair few steps they didn't complain once.

We undertook this Via Crucis as part of our Padre Pio pilgrimage. There were 40 in our group led by 2 Irish Priests. We used the slowly ascending walkway (suitable for wheelchair access) to perform the Stations of the Cross ,with the Cross held by 2 pilgrims between each station. The walk was extremely peaceful ,as we meditated in silence against a background of the stations flanked by trees. All who took part were uplifted by this deep spiritual experience. There were plenty of other groups and nationalities undertaking the Via Crucis at the same time. When we completed the journey to the Memorial at the top -we were inspired by the spectacular views -the more active and younger pilgrims descended by the many steps, while those who were less able walked back the same way they performed the stations.

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.
