A lookout place with a great view over San Cristobal. You can see all of the most important monuments, churches, temples and almost the whole city from there. Excellent location for making the best photos. Open from 9:00 to 2:00 and from 4:00 to 7:00 For more information, contact Nolberto or Romeo at SolMaya Language & Arts School.

It is an amazing view of San Cristobal, definitely worth walking up those funky steps. The top and middle of the steps are worth a picture.

I really liked the view, the steps are very pretty and I loved the yellow tones. San Cristobal is charming! Every street has a unique blend.

As someone said already not much to see from the top of the hill. Many trees prevent the view over San Cristóbal. The steps were constructed in 1941 as an inscription on one of the steps says. The church is closed because of the damages...More

A few flights of stairs to climb, but worth the effort. Nice view of the city and Iglesia de Guadalupe at the other end of town.

we walked to the top only to find most of the view is blocked by Trees. It was a easy climb up so wasn't that bad but dont expect amazing views,

The church sits atop the hill over looking the city and is well photographed. The short step stairs will give you a nice little view of the San Cristobal and the church it's self is typical. Worth the walk and if you like churches and...More

Nice to get above the city to see it, but the views are limited and there are better places in the town that give better views with less hassle.

A short but steep hike to this church gives you two benefits. The church itself is typical Spanish Catholic - full of statues, stained glass and saints festooned with offerings for favours received. The building itself is modest and small. The second benefit is the...More

didn't count the steps, but it was worth the effort to scale the hill and get the view of the city laid out below. sunset is the best time- the colors are amazing- and then head for cocktail hour.
