  • Walk uphill, very good I recommend it, by the nature of the landscape and the view from the Hill of the city

  • If you have desire to walk and climb a hill, Cerro de la Cruz is indicated. You should take precautions, tied shoes, ideal shoes with good soles, lots of water and hat head. Requires effort physical. Although the route is marked and it is safe, as far as possible should not climb alone. From the base to the top, rises in approximately, with breaks, in an hour. The view from the top is very cute, all Lake and the mountains. When it comes down we must remember to do it slowly because in several sections there are slopes more pronounced than others.

  • Sun. Pretty much. But the desire to see the city from the top could yet. Preferred footwear comfortable and abundant water.
