On the hillside of the Sanctuary of Lourdes is the Way of the Cross. The life sized(or larger) statues, built on a cast iron.
 Each of the fifteen(15) stations were all scattered on a weave -like on the hill. It starts on an  ascending pattern from one station to another and desends on the last  few stations.

 Due to large numbers of groups of pilgrims, expect to wait for them to finish their prayers before you can continue. SOme would even combine their group to another pilgrim's group to avoid long wait.
 The descend is a steep- not-so-rough road that one of my companions had her shoes removed. It was also raining at that time which made it even more difficult and slippery. It was a tough climb but it was also a one of kind  spiritual experience.
