Cerro de la Cruz Tours

5 Reviews
Cerro de la Cruz
The Hill of the Cross, or Cerro de la Cruz, is a 30-minute walk that, upon arrival, treats its guests to expansive views of Antigua and the Volcan de Agua. While this walk is not easy, it is worth it. For those who prefer to skip the hike, cabs can whisk people to the top as well.

Located on the north side of the city, it offers the best views of Antigua. And an enormous stone cross.

Practical Info

Take the bare minimum if choosing to walk unguided to this hilltop. Reports of robberies are frequent. The Tourist Police offer a free walk at 10am and 3pm daily. If going unescorted, it is recommended to let the Tourist Police know you are going.
