Fodor's Review

If you're up to the ascent, exactly 456 steps lead up to the Loma de la Cruz, a hill named for the large white cross that has graced it since 1790. Pace yourself—you'll find landings every 50 steps or so—and bring water. The climb up can get hot. From here you have a lovely view of Holguín and the surrounding limestone hills. There are also artisan shops and a snack bar.
