If you are passing or staying in Antigua, you have to walk up to Cerro de la Cruz. It has a stunning view of the whole city!

We walked through the back end of town to get up to the cross and got to see parts of Antigua we wouldn't have otherwise. The walk up through the cool forest was lovely, as were the views from the top.

I really enjoyed my walk up to the cross which takes around 10-15 minutes. The view was great and shows Antigua in its entirety. I especially loved seeing the Volcan de Agua and the Merced from the top. I, however think the views from the Tenedor are much nicer. This is situated in Antigua around a 10 minute free shuttle ride from the Santo Domingo hotel.

The view was unbelievable. The way that Volcano de Agua sits perfectly symmetrical with the city is a breath-taking site. If you are in the area, it is well worth the 10 minute easy hike from the street to see one of the best views you will ever see. I'm pretty well traveled, so I feel comfortable endorsing this in such a manner. Just sit up and enjoy the birds singing and just the magestic beauty that it is.

It's a nice walk up, and the view once you get there is pretty, but honestly I enjoyed the view from the second story of La Merced more. The walk is a comfortable 10 minutes or less from the street.
