We hired a driver for a coupe of hours who took us up here. We didn't bother going in, but we did enjoy the views.

The cross is not very pretty, but the climb inside and the point-of-view from the deck to the surrounding area is unique. Worth a visit on a clear day!

The place is situated in a very humble area, be careful not to get there walking or by yourself, security is an issue in the surroundings. Although in summertime and vacations this place could be crowded it is still worth the visit, whether you are...More
