Bani is noted for its version of Calvary Hill with a 1,000 step "VIA CRUSIS" leading to a gigantic cross. The Redeemer's Cross is perched on a plateau overlooking the South China Sea. This was a project of the late Doña Segundina Enriquez Navarro, beloved spouseof the late Mayor Marcelo C. Navarro. "Where once the gun ruled, let now the Holy Cross rule", she said. The annual Archdiocesan Penitential Pilgrimage every Holy Tuesday was first held in 1975 and continues to the present day, drawing thousands of pilgrims from Pangasinan and other provinces and a few from the USA, Canada and Europe.
