Tomé Hill

Pilgrims from surrounding cities make their way to the top of Tomé Hill every Good Friday morning. People walk for miles as local police close roads nearby due to the high amount of human traffic. Crosses and statues are carried to the top, but the most popular item carried along the way is a rosary. Many are left behind at the top after a person has finished praying. A few people walk the steep and rocky 1/2 mile path to the top barefoot and one man even crawls the entire way on hands and knees. It was pretty amazing to experience.
