Walking down the monastery street from the Church Sanctuary of Our Lady of Zagórz in Zagórz towards the ruins of the Monastery of the Fathers Carmelites Discalced approximately halfway up the road we will get to a unique Way of the Cross. In 2012, on the Marymont hill the stations were set up and designed by artists from Subcarpathia, such as Zdzisław Pękalski, Bogusław Iwanowski, Adam Gliczewski, Jacek Kucaba and others.
At individual stations, one can admire sculptures made of stumps or stones, bas-reliefs, metalwork, and spatial installations. This is a unique undertaking mirroring various artistic trends. All stations were placed on gingery rocks sourced from the quarry in Rabem near Baligród. Interesting appears  is the station of railwaymen in Zagórz where a buffer stop with the elements from before World War I was used. The facility is a kind of outdoor gallery. Additionally, moving from station to station we have the possibility to admire the panorama of Zagórz, the valley of the Osława River and the Słonne Mountains.
