This structure is a virtual
watchtower – a 15 meter high portal carrying an imposing 15-foot brass statue
of our patron saint,Ferdinand III of
Castile, or SAN FERNANDO— an impressive religious centerpiece which seemingly
stands guard over the entire park. Within the tower is another columbarium area
with over 400 crypts lined two stories high, in classic granite cladding.
This Tower also provides a panoramic
view of the grounds, a viewing deck where one can marvel at the serenity and
beauty of the Park’s whole expanse.
