“Unique place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

The Hill of Crosses was fairly easy to find thanks to the directions from the website. The hill is basically crosses piled quite neatly on top of each other but it provides a magnificent and unique sight due to the amount of crosses that is just overwhelming. The variety of crosses on this hill is also amazing. You can find crosses from almost every country in the world! The view from the top of the hill is also nice as it provides a view of almost all of the crosses on the hill as well as the church in the distance.

“Thousands of Stories in this Landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Countless crosses of all sizes, designs, and ages fill this hill and its lower edges. Certainly each cross has a story. One might ask, were some left here just because "it was the thing to do"? On the other extreme, was a cross brought in a pilgrimage of faith or as a memorial to a lost love one? This place is worth slowly meandering through and around, and, maybe, make it a place of contemplation.

“Not your usual attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Thousands of crosses planted together on a hill in the middle of the countryside. For the religious this will be an inspiring place. For others this will be an interesting stop; for these people perhaps not worth a 5-hour drive, but if within an hour or two's journey then definitely worth a look. Restaurant tip, just before the car park is a turn off to the right to a lovely restaurant a couple of hundred metres up the hill.
