I really wanted to see the view from this church, but was feeling too lazy to walk up the seemingly endless stairway, so I took a taxi. The view of the town below was lovely. The church was empty. I did walk down.

It is an amazing view of San Cristobal, definitely worth walking up those funky steps. The top and middle of the steps are worth a picture.

I really liked the view, the steps are very pretty and I loved the yellow tones. San Cristobal is charming! Every street has a unique blend.

Climbing up the steps to the church definitely burns a few calories and is a nice addition if you have the time. We climbed it at 6.30pm in the evening and when we reached the top we were able to watch a Quincinera (?) ceremony...More

A few flights of stairs to climb, but worth the effort. Nice view of the city and Iglesia de Guadalupe at the other end of town.

we walked to the top only to find most of the view is blocked by Trees. It was a easy climb up so wasn't that bad but dont expect amazing views,

The church sits atop the hill over looking the city and is well photographed. The short step stairs will give you a nice little view of the San Cristobal and the church it's self is typical. Worth the walk and if you like churches and...More

Nice to get above the city to see it, but the views are limited and there are better places in the town that give better views with less hassle.
