It's an awesome place for going alone or in family you can walk it up slowly and enjoy the view or just climb it ip in an hour but you have to be patient because you can have some trouble cimbing it up.

It's the nicest thing to see in Monterrey and anywhere you go, if you look around it's always there! Don't go to Monterrey without having your eyes on "the chair"

It is a big mountain that represents a saddlehorse and it is Monterrey city symbol. You can take very good pics when you are at Macro Plaza, near Life Fountain

This is the most emblematic mountain in Monterrey. This mountain is being destroyed by construction companies building houses and destroying the Green áreas. Even then there is a track you can take to walk up the mountain, it can be steep and dangerous if you do not know how to go up and back.

I had the privilege of actually climbing part of the "cerro" and it is filled with wonderful wild flowers, insects, waterfalls, etc, etc. Even bad tasting wild oranges grow there. This is a MUST see place and you must be in great shape to climb. Many locals go there every morning for their daily exercise. I was there in August... More

Whenever you see a picture of a Mountain beside the name Monterrey you are seeing the Cerro de la Silla. It is called this way because it is very similar to the horse chair and the traduction is hill form the chair. It is really beautiful , different and inspiring.

It is a very nice experience to go all the way to the top of the mountain to be able to see the chain of mountains, but if your physical condition is not so good, the middle part is also worth it to get a panorama of the city. The way up is a little bit heavy, but not impossible.... More
