  • Quotation place to watch the sunset in the East. Good parking and the place is well kept. I recommend not to miss the sunset.

  • The view that has the city of La Paloma is incredible, but is not easy to get to the top. There are too many stairs without a break, you have to wait on the stairs until it touches you turn up, and goes through a sort of hatch to reach the top. Not suitable for children, or those who have difficulty.
