It’s steep, so be prepared. Don’t walk up the hill first, unless you’re a climber. And don’t wear sandals like I did-too stressful. Absolutely worth the tough walk/simple climb.

I thought this was a great viewpoint. It was saturated with people for the holiday weekend, but I still managed to find a quiet shady place to enjoy the scene. It's quite an easy hike up hill, in fact, I hiked from town and loved...More

This is a fairly short hike. Not too difficult, however you do have to climb over several large boulders, so you should be in decent shape. The views are amazing from the top. Be cautious of the wind when near the edges!

Nice hike with beautiful views from the top. Take a taxi to its bottom to avoid useless walk and then climb the stairs. It takes about 1-2 hours roundtrip.

A climb up some some interesting rock formations takes you to the sacred top of La Pena. The views of this beautiful lake and surrounding countryside are awesome.

Beautiful views and chirping birds await you if you choose to walk up to the top in the early morning. We took a taxi to the entrance, but walked back to the centro. The climb is a bit tricky as the trail is not always...More

The phone climb to Mirador de Peña will give you the best view of the valley. You can see the lake and the nice part of town. The other side of the Mirador gives you access to this old magical town where all the houses...More
