Fodor's Review

Rising over the northeastern edge of the city is this massive hill, Cerro San Cristóbal, 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 or take a tour to the summit and back.
