This is a small hill at one end of Antigua, Guatemala; well sign posted and easy to drive or walk to from town. Enough car parking and a 100metre walk to the cross where it is safe to stand with lots of room before getting anywhere near the edge which is a gentle drop off anyway.

This is a must for anybody visiting Antigua however the place is a bit dirty and overestimated. Views are pretty especially on sunny days. Not physically too demanding.

We discovered later we overpaid the tuk-tuk driver but he waited for us at the top while we wandered around for about 20 minutes and got pictures. That's the only attraction, really, is the view over the city. After 4 p.m. apparently they're still having trouble with petty robbery, so go before.

This is a short hike up a well maintained trail to overlook Antigua. Perfect view of Volcan Agua overlooking the city. Bring good walking shoes and water if it’s a hot day.

A gorgeous view of the city and volcano. Well worth the walk. The stairs were easy to find not difficult to go up. A nice way to spend an hour.

our Lonely Planet guide book outlines a nice little walk where you can visit several ruins on your own. the starting point is here so we took a cab as directed and made our way back into town passing the beautiful ruins. we saw another group doing the same, with the same book. i would pass on the cab ride...

Close to the town center. Nice walk in the park for a good view. Did not find any water or public WC.

Very beautiful place to see the view of Antigua. You could acess by tuk tuk but don't go alone or in the evening.

Looking for free things to do? This is a must. A 30 minute walk from the center will take you to a beautiful view from the city and the surrounding volcanoes.
