I'm not catholic but I heard about these stations. Usual way in the church is just to walk along the paintings. This is a magical way to read about the passion, ending with the resurrection. I would recommend this as a way to endorse your...More

The climb along the path to the 15 Stages of the Sacre Monte Calvary is quite steep but very pretty. Well worth the effort. I understand it to be a pilgrimage of the Catholic faith.
