After a great day walking through the city during my visit to Holguín, my local cuban friends suggested it was best to climb as the sun went down so I could see the city from the top. It was so beautiful and was worth the exercise even though I was out of breath. We spent a few minutes admiring the... More

It was a terrifying drive up the hill in a bus...but the view was worth it!! You could see the city for miles. I love historical and religious monuments.

After a day on your feet this climb will sort you out. The view from the top in early evening, when it is cooler, is brilliant with views across Holguin and towards the coast. It is a place that the locals use as training run, yes run as they run up the 465 steps to the top. Easy to find... More

It is nice during the day but during the night too. The city of Holguin is magnificient with his lights during the night. There is a good restaurant there. This is a place to see.

This is an amazing site and if you have the opportunity to have someone from Cuba take you to this site other than a tour instructor it would be worth it. The history lesson that you can learn is very interesting. For those that are not physically fit, I would not recommend you attempting to walk up the hill as... More

Very romantic and awesome view at night. Take one of the 1950s or 1940s taxis! Area had police on duty, and was not crowded at all.

The later you leave it the hotter it gets and as the day warms up kids arrive to escape the olds which can make you feel a bit intrusive. The view from the top is great and there's a good cafe to sit and enjoy a well earned beer or glass of rum.
