My World#17 Via Cruces, Old Vulcan, Camiguin

Via Cruces or Way of the Cross is found at the slopes of the Old Vulcan, Bonbon, Camiguin. A popular destination during Lenten season, it is where fifteen stations of life-size figures depicting the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is located.






At the fourteenth station, a sepulchre was carved out of the volcanic rocks depicting the burial of Jesus Christ.

The climb takes about one hour going up but it is all worth it as the view at the top is spectacular.

For those who plan to climb this walkway, bring water as it could get very hot out there more especially during summer days.

I have wanted to take a peek of these, but we ran out of time when we were there. Maybe next time. Nice of you for showing us these.

P.S. about the dirty kitchen, I also dreaded it when we cousins have to do the cooking at the dirty kitchen at our lola's house. LoL

My goodness, what a beauty. Looking at the pictures, its telling me I am so ignorant about my home country. The sculptures are just so amazing. Thank you for these pictures.

I do believe that is the island home of the wife of a dear friend. I enjoyed seeing it.

What a beautiful walk that must be.

A spectacular view from the top and a very interesting post. It must be a very impressing sight when the faithful are moving up the mountain praying and singing.

That destinantion is quite interesting. I used to participate in via cruces in Venezuela around the villages, not like yours but was great too.
Thanks for sharing your world.

I imagine that it must be very crowded, and have an intense atmosphere at this time of year.

You weren't kidding about a spectacular view! It looks well worth the climb. And the statuary is beautiful, too. Perfect timing for this post.
