I had read many, many scary things about the safety of this place. Not only should you take a taxi because you are likely to be mugged in surrounding neighborhoods, but it also looked rather complicated to find the top.
We hired someone to take us up, wait for us, and then take us to the Basilica back downtown. It was worth the money. The views are nice. The entrance to the actual inside didn't seem worth it. But during the day, for two Americans with a taxi, it was fine.
