An amazing find right off the highway when first entering SAN Luis. Mary Jo from the visitor's center across the street was very helpful and informative. The quick hike has the stations along the way and end with the shrine. Touching and beautiful.

We have driven by the Stations of the Cross Shrine several times. This time we decided we would stop. It is worth the climb to the top. We even took our dogs with us. Make sure you pause at each station and notice the details...More

Worth visiting for sure. A short hike up to the Shrine takes you past stations with amazing bronze statues depicting Christ's struggle to his ultimate sacrifice. Very inspiring and humbling.

This is a peaceful, beautiful, and holy place. The sculptor is local and his work is well-known in many other places. He is a fine, fine artist. The walk, with the sculpted art, is a good reminder of important events in Christ's last hours. This...More

We stopped here driving from Santa Fe to Colorado Springs on the "back roads." The drive was easy, and it is such a picturesque setting. The Stations of the Cross are beautifully made bronze artwork. The Church is lovely, and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
What's the drive like from Santa Fe to the shrine? Not sure which path to take - highway 285 or through Taos? I don't do heights very well, so is it like the Sierras going to Yosemite or normal like driving to Denver?

One thing more, 522 takes you directly to San Luis. 285 would bring you out on the west side of the San Luis Valley. They from antonito you would have to drive back east across the valley which is 33 miles.
