  • Amazing views and a great place for a day out. You can visit the summit and the church by either hiking, driving or taking the cable car up. Sunset is the best time to visit the place as the views are beautiful on a clear day. The church is also beautiful but the real prize are the gardens around the church. Make sure you have a couple of hours free to get lost up here.
  • Decent site with very views of the city down below. Recommended to be done at the end of the day when the sun is going down and the color are golden.
  • Take the cable car up to the great views and beautiful park with its unusual assortment of gigantic boulders.
  • Beautiful place. Very quiet
