This property, is owned and operated by the Archdiocese of San Juan, is the future site of a new church and new offices for the Archdiocese. While those projects are still in the planning phase, two wonderful and awe-inspiring displays are already in place — a life-sized Stations of the Cross and a large cross that is about 150 feet tall and is located at the highest point on the property to make an even more imposing and allows it to be seen from long distances..
The the real show-stopper are the life-sized Stations of the Cross sculptures. The 14 stations are cast in bronze, and they depict the last days and hours of Christ’s life. The sculptures are so large and lifelike … you can see the agony in the eyes and feel the pain in the muscles with each fall. I find them to be very moving emotionally. Currently, they are located around the base of the cross, but the plan is to relocate them the garden area below.
There is no fee to access the park.
The park is open 7 days/week, from 8am until 4:30pm.
It’s a short stop. Allow about 30 minutes.
You can call the Archdiocese of San Juan at 787-646-9448 for more information.
The park is easy to get to. It’s just off of Road 199 in Trujillo Alto. Just look for the big cross.
