Fodor's Expert Review San Luis

San Luis and Fort Garland Loop Town/Village

Founded in 1851, San Luis is the oldest incorporated town in Colorado. Murals depicting famous stories and legends of the area adorn several buildings in the town. A latter-day masterpiece is the Stations of the Cross Shrine, created by renowned local sculptor Huberto Maestas. The shrine is formally known as La Mesa de la Piedad y de la Misericordia (Hill of Piety and Mercy), and its 15 stations with bronze statutes illustrate the last hours of Christ's life. The trail leads up to a chapel called La Capilla de Todos Los Santos.
