Fodor's Review

Rising over the northeastern edge of the city is this massive hill, recognizable from the cross at its peak—a replica of the one once placed there by Pizarro. On a clear day—more common during the southern summer—you can see most of the city below. The neighborhood at the base of the hill is sketchy, so hire a taxi to take you to the summit and back. At this writing, an aerial tram to the summit is being planned.
