... The steps follow the Christian 'Stations of the Cross'... So the Passion of Christ, Jesus's last few days before being nailed to the cross and resurrecting to life. So at each hairpin bend, there is a little shrine with a picture of that particular station of the cross... About two thirds of the way up, I was so tempted to kneel at one of them and ask God to just teleport me to the top and spare me more steps... "How many Argentine Pesos will it take?" I ...
