It is a short hike up the hill to reach the cross and when you do, you get an incredible view of Antigua. A few market stalls are up there too for your souvenir needs.

Great views from the top of this hill, the steps leading to this were well maintained and we saw couple of police officers keeping guard midway. Overall a good view point for Antigua.

Gorgeous view! It's a hike up a hill, they say 1000 steps up on a staircase passing a forest. When you get up there, there's a large cross that towers over Antigua.

The view of Antigua backdropped by Agua Volcane is iconic, however, becareful of your surrounding. There are many robberies here. The local police are ill prepared to help if you are robbed. Basically all they will do is give you a police report for insurance...More

Nice bit of exercise! I walked up solo on a Sunday afternoon. Just walk north on 1a Avenida, start up the hill, then turn left on the walking path. Online maps work fine. Perfectly safe for a woman alone on a Sunday afternoon, as there...More

An easy walk up a paved walkway with steps leads to the viewpoint. Depending on the weather you may not get the classic view of Agua volcano in the distance, but still a good vantage point out over the city.

Cool spot to go and see. Easy 15 minute walk to the top by stairs. The entrance is at the very north east of town, safe to walk to and bring your phone, no problems. I went in the afternoon and for the sunrise.
