Lots of hidden trails and spectacular views. Make sure you get Mote con Huesillo at the peak! Most refreshing (kind of sweet) tradional drink plus an empanada de pino.

Besides the nice view of the city, the place has a nice religious atmosphere. Nothing too appealing, just calm and relaxing.

The queue for the tram was really long so we walked up. It was steep but took 30 mins at a brisk pace. Nice views at the top.
