“Amazing view”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Quite a trip to get up there but on a clear day you can see all the way to Leon, Silao, Guanajuato, etc. Worth the effort to get there.

“AMAZING!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Long, bumpy road but with the trip. Taxi driver stated most people come in the hundreds of thousand during Christmas and other "Christian" holidays.

The view is awesome!

“Amazing center of Mexico”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

It is a bit of a drive up there, but amazing views. I drove up there in my own car,so I am not sure how much it costs with a taxi. If you are staying Guanajuato at least a week, then you should visit.

“Unbelievable View of Mexico!!”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

The short ride from Guanajuato to this pilgrimage site puts you smack dab in the geographic (so it is said) center of Mexico over 8,000 feet above sea level. (Bring a jacket - it is cold and windy that high up). The views are awe-inspiring. One of those few moments in your life when you will be speechless by what your eyes are showing you.
