Best Religious Pilgrimage - 2003
Shrine of the Stations of the Cross
Colorado's oldest town lies just about twenty miles from the New Mexico border and cherishes its deep Hispanic roots. Local sculptor Huberto Maestas created fifteen bronze statues -- the fourteen traditional depictions of Christ's final journey up Calvary, plus his own interpretation of the Resurrection -- for tiny San Luis's Hill of Piety and Mercy. You can follow in Jesus's footsteps with an easy hike along a series of switchbacks up the mesa. For a really good Good Friday, begin your pilgrimage at La Capilla de Todos los Santos - All Saints Chapel -- and end at the grotto of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
