Don't miss the Hill of the Cross! It is the best view in Antigua. Well worth the 333 steps to get to the top.

This is well worth the short hike up from the center of Antigua. Although the hill is teaming with tourists, the view is great and you can shoot a bunch of iconic photos of Antigua and the Agua Volcano.
