We really enjoyed walking through the streets of Holguin. Part of the tour was a visit to the Hill of the Cross . The views were stunning. You could take a taxi and go straight there, but to learn and enjoy the whole city of Holguin, a tour is the way to go! :)

Great view of Holguin city. But in the heat and humidity of Cuba, I would not recommend taking the 200+ steps up to the cross, take a taxi! :)

We visited this as part of a bus tour of 'Inside Cuba' in July 2014. The story of the Cross is very interesting, as is the powerful image of the Cross at the top of the Hill, overlooking the city. And what an amazing view! You can actually take the steps all the way to the top but in the... More

Fabulous history, wonderful lady who seems to spend every day there. Buy a necklace from her it will make a difference.

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
