Korosti Cross

16/10/2012
  • Town:
    Legazpi

It was erected in “Auzolan” by order of Pope Leo XIII, who wanted the sign of the cross to crown the most important mountains.

What is really important is its size and dimensions (all of these are related to the 33 years that Christ is supposed to have lived).

Reconstruction work carried out in 1950 covered parts of the arms in steel. It also enclosed the names of all of the local villagers and a small fragment of the cross of Mirandola.
