  • The Chapel is at the top of the cerro de San Antonio, and that's what gives you all the charm. If I didn't have that view all around, it was only a small chapel and bland.

  • It is located at the top of the Hill of the same name. It is appropriate to pray surrounded by a wonderful landscape. It is very small and can be only standing since you don't have banks.

  • The chapel of San Antonio's tiny, but well preserved. Have a fabulous view from the gazebo. Near the chapel there are some souvenir shops. It's a charm, is worth knowing.
