Iguig Calvary Hills & Parish of St. James the Greater (San Antonio de Galicia)

Located about 16 kilometers from Tuguegarao City. In the 11-hectare rolling hills are the larger-than-life-size concrete 14 Stations of the Cross depicting Jesus Christ’s suffering before his death at Mount Calvary. The statues were completed in 1982. The place also features a three centuries old well, Dominican convent ruins, and the prosaic view of the Cagayan River which resembles that of the River Jordan. Built of concentric bricks, the church has buttresses, one of the very few left in the country.

This station depicts Mary embracing her Son Jesus after his death on the cross.

The Calvary HIlls covers 11 hectares of land and during lent many people come here to remember Jesus' life and death.
