Cerro Calvario, Copacabana

4.1
#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.

  • The hike up was tough given the altitude and the steepness of the climb, but we were rewarded with a bird's eye view over Copacabana, the sea and the surrounding islands. You can spot Isla Del Sol as ...  more »
  • Short but harsh hiking :-) The climb is a hassle as its name suggests! On the other hand, the view is beautiful from all sides! To make during your stay in copacabana

  • Have a beautiful view, a place to rest in the middle of the climb. Could be a cleaner place, but the view is worth it.

Where to stay in Copacabana

Set in such a scenic spot on the shores of Lake Titicaca, it's little wonder that people wish to stay in Copacabana when exploring the region's natural and cultural attractions. Beachside stays remain popular, with chic, boutique style hotels and larger high-rise options offering extensive views of South America's largest lake. Expect to pay a little less when you look a few streets back from the sand and the water, with hotels and hostels both available. Thanks the Copacabana's continuous uphill slope, views of the lake are possible from pretty much anywhere around the main urban area.
