The 42 meter (138 ft.) cross of the Chapel of Peace high in the hills above Acapulco is a familiar symbol in the city. The chapel, opened in 1971, is a memorial to the two sons of the founder of the famed Las Brisas resort who were killed in a plane crash. The non-denominational chapel and its gardens are popular for weddings and watching the sun set. Notable is a bronze sculpture of clasped hands - The Hands of Brotherhood - by Claudio Favier at the foot of the cross. The brothers and their parents are buried on the site.
