  • The Cerro de la Cruz is located a few blocks from the center of Villa Carlos Paz at the end of the Estrada Avenue. Nice place to go trekking and get to the monument to the cross at the top of the Hill. It is a path that it takes to upload an hour according to the rhythm of each one and the rest time. It is advisable to wear comfortable clothes, good shoes and water. The ascent takes panoramic views of the city of Carlos Paz. The path is well signposted and has 14 stations representing the via crucis.

  • It is an exciting walk about 1 hour and a half. It has the marked trail so it is very easy to follow the path of the cross which is at the top of the Hill. During the journey the via Crucis is underway and there are viewpoints. It is a very quiet and beautiful location overlooking the entire city.

  • The walk is beautiful, but be careful because you have to go up the stones and then lower them. Many times more people see it and think that it is a path that you climb up to the cross, but it is not have to overcome obstacles with stones
