Nature, sometimes, also gives rise to manifestations of faith. In the province of La Rioja , in the middle of an almost desert landscape, the Lord of la Peña stands firm. A large rock that is a meeting point for the faith and tradition of the province.
El Señor de la Peña is a stone of more than 12 meters high and 20 meters wide. What distinguishes this formation is that, if you look at it from a certain angle, you can perfectly glimpse the profile of a face. That face, they say, resembles that of Christ. That is why the place has become a place of worship of the Christian faith.
This stone is a detachment of the Sierras del Velasco. It is estimated that it has been in place for more than 2000 years. For Easter, more than 50,000 people come to join there. Then thousands of candles burn day and night by crosses around the rock. At its top stands an iron cross, which was placed in 1842.
El Señor de la Peña is located near Barreal de Arauco, 100 km north of the city of La Rioja.
