  • Impressive monument. It is worth climbing. I did stairs 890 to digest lunch, sanisimo! Inside there is a museum. His name is related to the word 'freedom' while not anything other than another evidence of the calamities which leaves us a war. The scenery from the top is breathtaking! One of the most patriotic symbols of the country. Above, above!
