On a hillside, on the far North of Antigua, a stone cross and the most superb views of Antigua and its outstanding historic center, as well of the iconic "Volcán de Agua". This is "Cerro de la Cruz" (Hill of the Cross, in English), a popular attraction among locals and visitors. At the very end of 1ª Avenida Norte, you will find the "Ruta para el Cerro de la Cruz". Hiking the hill can be quite tiring and challenging for all those not very well fit. Due to security reasons, single hiking visits to "Cerro de la Cruz" are not recommended at all times. A local guide and a car would be my suggestion at any visit. And a last remark, do visit "Cerro de la Cruz" only after touring Antigua. You'll be able to recognize sites and buildings you have just visited. Enjoy!

We did this hike in the morning after breakfast. It was mostly uphill but easy due to the steps carved into the hill along the path. From the top there is a view of the whole city below and of course the volcano. Great for picture taking.

The walking path up the hill is wooded, clean and well maintained. Great for a hike if you need exercise while in Antigua. The top is not landscaped nor a pleasant place to stop for a break. I would have been very disappointed if I had taken transportation to the top. There are much better places if what you want is a view.

I toured this via my mountain tour. Very nice view of the city. There are merchants there to sell trinkets and icecream.
