  • Great place to take pictures and have a privileged view of the city of Lima, which is worth knowing, well not go at night.

  • The "Cerro San Cristóbal" is a tour in Lima in Peru. It is situated on the highest point of file to 400 m above sea level. The panoramic view of the city is the best! The tour is conducted by may tour buses from the Plaza de Armas. The bus only part after completing with a sufficient number of tourists.

  • 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.
