  • The place is a bit far from the city, 1 Sun charge entry to the lookout. The ascent is little heavy but if these in the area, is worthwhile. Although it has good views, there are best viewpoints and nothing happens if you do not come to this. The good thing is that you have good "picanterías", I went to the "Cau Cau" and was rather rich.

  • Only if you are passing through the area. There are better views of the city and the countryside elsewhere. In Sachaca there good picanterías as La Lucila, so you can combine it with a good lunch traidiconal. Eye are lots of stairs.

  • You have a 360 ° spectacular view. The entrance to the Tower has a cost of 1 sol, so it is a nice for visiting place. It is a bit far, so it is advisable to go early, while the sunset from that place must be incredible.

The historical center offers the best selection of options, with plenty of budget hostels and mid-range hotels scattered throughout its streets.
