Stopped there on the Tchou Tchou train. Didn't really see the point of it, views aren't that good. If you're into seeing the stations of the cross painted by what looks like a 5 year old, then you'll enjoy it. Didn't see the point of...More

Not being particularly religious we found 5 mins to walk around was enough at this religious site. Great view across the area.

This site is run by volunteers and is a great monument to the Catholic faith. It's well worth a wander around and it certainly offers great views of Noumea. It could do with a cafe and restrooms.

The view from up there is amazing and the monument is beautiful as well. You don't have to be religious to appreciate it. You're taking in the local culture.
