  • It is too cold and can affect health. The view is spectacular. There are meals and hot chocolate for sale.

  • If you come travel to Mérida, this is one of the sites that you necessarily have to visit; the monument is relevant but the best pictures will take them from the back of the Chapel, that if you see warm, it is too cold, remember these 4.118 masl. DON'T run, it can give you what is known as 'Evil Moor', walks calmly and breathe through your nose.

  • It is a must-see in the Merida Moors. Go well sheltered. It is recommended not only to reach the chapel of the Virgin of Coromoto and the Eagle statue, continue driving towards Piñango until you reach the antennas, there is much more high and cold, with beautiful views.

  • Higher point you can get by car
  • Tourist site, at an altitude of 4118 meters above sea level. Can be reached with vehicle. With a cold climate, nevada have been on few occasions. I recommend walking slowly due to atmospheric pressure caused by the height. It has natural landscapes of paramo, a restaurant, sales at kiosks of Strawberry with cream, coffee, calentaito and chocolates.

An established tourist destination for adventurers and extreme sports enthusiasts, Merida offers ample accommodations for its guests. The town flanks Highway 7, and accommodations spread across the neighborhoods--although the main bulk of options cluster in the eastern end of town.
