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.

This monument is breath taking and sad at the same time. Your tour guide will give you a detailed explanation. Be prepared...there are alot of steps to get up to it!!

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.

We walked up here from the bottom and the view was great. There was a little Cuban market in the small church at the top. Wonderful place to be with family and friends.

Great view of the city and surrounding hills/mountains. Hard climb up the stairs, but worth it, bring a bottle of water for the way up and go early morning or when the sun is setting. Take a taxi there if you are old or lazy. I went up walking 3 or 4 times. There was a older Cuban guy man... More

460 (big) steps to the highest point in the city. Good views of the city all around. There's a bar at the top as a reward.

It was a gorgeous view of all of Holguin from the top of the mountain. The cross is beautiful and people go lay flowers and pray there. There is also a restaurant and people have lots of fun partying and dancing there at night. I would go back at night for a meal and dancing!

if you're unlucky you have to walk the 450 steps to get to it, however we had our driver take us direct - lazy yes, but in 33 degree heat rather be lazy than melting into a pool of goo at the top before getting to see the most amazing 360 degree view. AWESOME. There was a small table top... More

It has a great view and it was a fun walk to the top. There is not much at the top but a rather plain cross but the view is good. Try to go when the light is good in the morning.
