Heard about the place for sometime. It is a place people go to for the way of the cross during holy week. It is out of the way. A real sacrifice. It is at the end of a small street off the main street. The...More

It's on top of the mountain. Quiet place. Statues are far from each other since it is used for Station of the Cross.
