  • Best coast view in town
  • Llegar temprano pq no hay muchos estacionamientos
  • Great view of the whole city.
  • Place boat viewpoint in which you can get by csminando by scales or in smaller vehicles, but I recommend climbing the artillería elevator that is cultural heritage of the humanity that is the more antigui the world in operation with more than 100 years of service.
