The mirador gives you some nice views from San Cristobal and the surrounding area. It's worth the 15-minute walk from the main square.

Not much to see, it's great for pictures, ask for directions. The surroundings seem a little unsafe.

You can see San Cristobal from the top and make some exercise with the stairs that guide you to the church. Back from the church you can see fields and nature.

There are always a couple of boys wanting you to sign a small note book with your name and then give them a donation for the school. It is a scam. don't do it..

Right beside Hotel Casa de Guadalupe, wonderful little gathering area below stairs and walking distance to the core of downtown

Great view over both sides of San Cristobal - over the city and from the back of the church over the countryside. It is a steep climb up the stairs to the church but you are rewarded when you see the city before you. Look inside the small church when you get to the top as well.

If you want a good view in San Cristobal de las Casas this could be a nice alternative but you have to deserve it since you have to climb a lot of steps ! It's clearly worth it though !

Located at one end of the city with a small park at its base this small church perched atop a hill is great for taking sweeping panoramic shots of San Cristobal while surveying the overall layout of the city.

well worth the climb for the views of the town, actually more photogenic a little way from the top to avoid trees
