4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web
Dotted with brightly painted homes, cafes, art galleries, and craft shops, Cerro Santa Ana owes its name to a legendary Spanish treasure hunter who topped the hill with a votive cross to Santa Ana. Follow the winding 444-step stairway to reach the lighthouse on the hilltop, which offers panoramic views of the city and its rivers. At the open-air museum you can see the remains of a 17th-century fortress and cannons, which protected the city from pirate attacks. Other highlights include a bar occupying half of a reconstructed pirate ship, a small chapel, and a naval museum.
