It was so beautiful, the story behind it was interesting and I loved the fact that it accepted all religions. So moving.

I went to mass and it was a beautiful experience to be at the top of the mountain, where you only hear the birds, and the breeze, bringing you freshness. Where you can see the beautiful Acapulco bay and enjoy so much peace.

This was built in the memory of a rich man's 2 sons killed in a plane accident. In a very wealthy part of Acapulco overlooking the bay.

I was also told a plane crash by a local guide. The whole series of events was so tragic that there must be loads of documented info on it. Good luck with you research.
