Magic place, one of a kind. Rising above religion, I have not encountered any place with such a cumulation of hope, gratitude, sorrow.... humanity in a pure form.

It is a very unique and spiritual place. I have found it by accident and it was really worth to visit. Nice and quiet with a special atmosphere. The crosses there are astonishing. Free parking and free toilet facilities (which is really clean)
