We took the coach to the top as iot was so hot. a few on opur trip got off at the bottom of the steps and walked up, they looked a little worse for wear at the top. Amazing views of the city. A few stalls to by carvings etc. We did this as part of the Thomas Cook trip to Holguin.

Lovely views on Holguín, great place to take pictures. A cafe and bar also at the top, which offers refreshments at a reasonable price.

Really nice place and hot as hell also But when you want to have active holiday don’t hesitate to climbing in... as this cross has got his own story too, man he builded this place for his wife ages and ages as whole city is that far with to many stairs to get to the city centre and back on the top( to cross) so it took time for him to go whole the way down for all the building materials and back up... his wife he was building this cross for was dying which was the reason he was building it... that day when he finished it and whole the cross was ready his wife died... when you will check how far he had to go daily you won’t believe! Great place. Drinks a bit pricey take your own food and drinks in there.

A great view from the highest point in Holguin. Part of a fort and a step set of stairs if you feel energetic brings you to the Cross on the hill. Worth a visit when you visit Holguin.
