Cerro Calvario, Copacabana

(380+ reviews on the web)
Lookout Religious Site
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. Take a look at our Copacabana itinerary builder to schedule your visit to Cerro Calvario and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
