I have my reservations to recommend it as a "tourist" spot, it is not, it was not designed to do so. If it represents a lot for many (should represent much to everyone) but the place is loaded with a melancholy that wrinkle the soul as a role. I was touched to tears when I visited. Also is good clarify you to which comes "of outside" that the Hill, place where is is this emblematic monument, is a neighborhood to walk with caution, it of "paradise" that read in an opinion me seems out of it reality, think that some people should remember that their opinions encourage expectations from travelers that read and is based in such opinions for visit or not a site.show original
