Tome Hill - Crosses at the Top

Tome-7.jpg

(click to enlarge) Tome Hill became a religious pilgrimage site for Los Penitentes in the 18th century, but occasioned opposition from the Catholic bishop of the area. Three crosses were permanently placed there in 1947. The scanned pages from this book, p. 168 provide an interesting history of the place.
