The walk up the hill to the church was steep but worth the effort. The stations are excellently crafted and very moving. The church itself is memorable as well.

Be sure to visit this hidden gem in the San Luis Valley! This attraction is very easy to find and is well-marked. An easy, well-maintained trail takes guests up to the top of a mesa. Along the route, beautiful bronze statues depict each station. They are very life-like and full of detail. At each stop, a placard lists the station and a Bible quote associated with it. At the top of the mesa, the shrine stands proudly and is a beautiful mission-style structure. Be sure to walk the Mexican Martyr Memorial and visit The Grotto. Leashed dogs are allowed on the trail but cannot go into the shrine itself. There is also a way to drive to the top to see the shrine for those who are disabled. It was very quiet and beautiful here. This would be a great place to reflect or meditate.

It’s really unfortunate that the town does not have any information about the Memorial that stands adjacent to the Stations at the Mesa top. I found this far more compelling than the Stations, and that’s saying a lot! Memorialized are many priests and laypeople who were executed by the Mexican army at a time in that country’s history when the Roman Catholic Church was viewed as a threat. Beneath each martyr’s bust is a plaque with biographical information, as well as a description of his last actions and/or words. I found this information profoundly compelling and evidence that it is possible to embody the same kind of courage and faith in the face of death that the Stations highlight in the life and death of Christ.

We were here on an unusually warm day and I am glad we carried water. The walk was not hard. The stations are awe inspiring and so is the view from the shrine at the top of the hill. There are restrooms at the top. The church is quaint and lovely.

Beautiful depiction of the stations. Some are life sized. You can walk if you are up for it but I am not at this stage of life. Finding the road to drive up isn't easy. One mile before you get into town coming from the north you will see a small sign saying Stations of the Cross road. Turn there and drive the dirt road to the shrine.
