A lovely view over the city. We cheated and took a cab, but you can walk. We went in the evening when the lights were on all over the city,

This is worth a visit for some decent views over Holguin City and surrounding countryside. We had the opportunity to walk up the steps but only teenage son no:2 chose this option so the rest of us stayed on the coach for the twisting &precipitous climb. Plenty of hawkers flogging all sorts of stuff at the top and the inevitable... More

My family chose to take the steps up this big hill so we had the taxi driver drop us off at the bottom and pick us up at the top. The steps are taller than average so you'll be able to count this as one of your work-outs when you get to the top! The view is great from the... More

Highest point in the city of Holguin. Wonderful photo opportunities. Load up on sunscreen and water bottles if you decide to do the stairs. Don't try taking the climb in the afternoon to avoid the sun, it's a dangerous area to be walking around at night. You should arrange for a taxi to take you back to the city, if... More

We took the excursion to Holguin in April of 2013 on our way to Holguin Airport for our return flight to Halifax. We saw a lot of the countryside, which was very interesting, just seeing where the resort workers live and the animals and lovely countryside along the way. We had a full meal in a restaurant high above Holguin... More

Lots of stairs, so be prepared, rest every 50 steps, wear good shoes, a hat, bring water. Restaurant at the top was good. Bring your own Kleenex or toilet paper for any attraction.

Worth stopping - it is an important pilgrimage destination, be prepared for hassles by the few locals. They are polite and will go if you ask them to. There are police there as well. great for photos and a view of Holguin
