Amazing! You can see the cross off in the distance as you approach Groom. However I had no idea of the magnitude of the cross until I was up and close. Also had not idea of the life size figures for the stations of the cross. Very touching, definitely a must see and experience for your own self.

Stopped by on our way back east and really enjoyed it. Everything was top-notch. The gift shop was open when we stopped by. Enjoyed shopping. Also, we were the only visitors at the time we stopped (during the weekday) and it was very peaceful.

This is a "must see"! Loved everything about it. We stopped late in the day and the gift shop was closed so we missed that. There were just a few people around and it was just so peaceful and quiet. The beautiful statues tell the wonderful story of Jesus' crucifixion. Truly a great place to just stop and reflect for... More

Sculptures that illustrate the story of Jesus. Very educational and brought the story to life. This was an incredible place to visit on our road trip. Our children enjoyed it as well. Stop in the large gift shop to support this amazing place.

A very pleasant surprise driving I-40 in Texas! We stopped to take a look up close and were impressed with such a nice job they have done with this property. It has been nicely developed as a Christian site to see different aspects of our Lord's journey to his death and resurrection. It was moving to see the hill where... More

These life size statues depict the stations of the Cross , the Passion of Christ. It is a worthwhile visit and a wonderful way to take a breather when travelling. The huge crucifix is visible from a distance on the highway. There is a gift shop with beautiful articles on the property.
