Cerro Calvario, Copacabana

4.3
#4 of 10 in Things to do in Copacabana
Gain a panoramic view of the surrounding area from Cerro Calvario, a hill littered with small monuments representing the 14 Stations of the Cross. Climb the hill with pilgrims making their way to the top, and admire the monuments built here during the 1950s. Along the route--which takes about half an hour to walk from start to summit--you'll see fortune-tellers and native priests burnings candles and offering blessings. The view from the top is extensive and uninterrupted, while the monuments photograph well against the backdrop of the water and the town. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Copacabana trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • the ascent is terrible! Approximately 30 min with frequent stops to catch his breath. To get to the top, everything is justified. View of the whole city and the "infinite" Blue Lake. Bring water and food to spend a good time up there, because it pays. Reserve a little mood for the descent.

  • The best place to watch the sunset at Copacabana, a road spectacular, quite tiring journey but it is worthwhile to explore it

  • Must see in Copacabana! It takes you around 20-30 minutes from the main street but it‘s worth it. You get a view over whole Copacabana City and the beautiful Lake Tititaca!  more »

  • We walked up Cerro Calvario, a hill north of town, where we climbed pass 14 stations of the cross. Due to the high altitude I struggled with the climb, but made it to the summit. There is a great view of Copacabana and Lake Tititcaca.
  • It's beautiful! Too much you observe the Bolivian side of Lake Titicaca.
