A must see for everyone. Very beautiful and peaceful. It is a tribute to 2 sons killed in a plane wreck from their parents

The history at this site was very interesting and the views were beautiful! The cross is amazing up close and personal! We saw it on City Tour with Sergio. We loved Sergio!

How it came about to build this chapel because of a tragedy of 2 deaths of 2 brothers. A bit of uphill hike for seniors.

We attended Sunday Mass and had a meaningful quiet moment in this beautiful location. Recommend using Ricaro Alverez as a driver to take you to this location.

Very beautiful, serene place to visit. Our guide, Sebastian Hernandez Ricardo, was able to give us the full history of the place and the significance of its symbology.
