  • Ideal for those who visit for the first time lima to give an idea of the dimensions of the capital. The ideal is to go on a clear day to see as much as possible

  • It was great to see the city of alto. Very nice ride, but it has to have pique, the climb is hard and tiring. Recommend going to tennis because the stairs are, and makes the journey well. Up and down of the funicular that was a lot easier and a novs experience. The Chapel is very beautiful, we were able to sit, relax and do our prayers. Recommend a visit!

  • There are always little people. partly because the highest point reached is possible only through local district favell, driving along which our cabbie closed all Windows and locked doors. But in clear weather, rare in October, this is the best overview of Lima. Prominent and historical center, and the coast, and a local Bullfight. In General, the whole city is in sight!

  • So rare to get a clear sky, so if it happens, run (morning or evening). 360 ° view around the parking place.
  • Amazing view over Lima
  • The viewpoint of the Cerro San Cristóbal in the city of Lima provides us with an incredible view of the city. The story that was a cannon to the top to defend the city from any attack.

  • The view from the top is amazing, just the rise in custer on the edge of her skirt and night does something dangerous (one is not going to tumble by turns on the edge of the precipice). Well, it is the opinion of someone who suffers from vertigo.
