alot of stairs but the view from the top is amazing

I don't have 100 words. It was a great trip and everyone enjoyed great view of the city, great bus ride up if you can't climb it.

If you wish to have a great day out with your family friends and children whilst in holguin do make your way to loma de Cruz,a very good chance to enjoy the magnificent cuban weather outdoors and exercise to wear off all the generous portions of food you are offered everywhere.

My partner and I, not the most fit of people, enjoyed walking around Holguin, the 440 steps up to the cross can be done slowly as the steps are reasonably distanced with seats regularly placed. at the top, a band was playing there is the usual mix of tourist stalls, one can buy a drink, enjoy the view. . ....

It is definitely worth traveling to the Hill of the Cross. Gorgeous view of Holguin. The history is interesting. We purchased some local paintings at this site.

If you time your visit to Loma de la Cruz for a night-time event, you'll be treated to a nice overview of the city and it's lighted areas.

A large Cross is centered on a hill over looking the city of Holguin. It is a short drive or a 20 minute climb to reach the top. Beautiful views, local musicians and a souvenir stand were present at the top. This makes a nice quick stop.

Travelled to Holguin for the day and no trip to Holguin would be complete without visiting the Hill of the Cross. There is not a lot to do at the top except to take in the amazing 360 views over Holguin and surrounding areas. We had a guide to point out places we had been earlier in the day and... More
