  • Even if a bit to make a slope must run up (also with bus and taxi possible) you will be rewarded with a beautiful view. Especially at sunrise or sunset.

  • A simple stroll up the hill. It was just 12 minutes from my hostel to catch the sunrise. The view from La Recolecta was pretty good but there is a nearby hotel that offers a much better view.
