Cerro de la Cruz, Antigua

4.4
Embark on a short but steep walk to Cerro de la Cruz, a landmark of Antigua. The ascent takes you to a scenic lookout point, complete with a large cross statue made of stone, dedicated to the city’s patron saint. From the viewpoint perched on the hilltop, you can enjoy the postcard-like vista of the city, with the imposing Volcan Agua in the background. Robberies in the once notorious area have declined thanks to improved security, but it's best not to attempt the ascent alone or at night.

  • Rewarding climb, beautiful view. There are some benches and tables to stop at on the way up, police were hanging around so it was very safe. Definitely worth doing while in Antigua. Free if you walk up.
  • Epic adventure in Antigua. Reasonable walk up the mountain and easy walk down to the city. Go in the morning for the clearest view of Agua and good lighting on the city. There are snacks and water for sale once you get up there.
