This 409m-high hill to the northeast of Lima Centro has a mirador (lookout) at its crown, with views of Lima stretching off to the Pacific (in winter expect to see nothing but fog). From the Plaza de Armas, taxis can take you to the summit (from S16) or you can wait for the Urbanito bus , on the southwest corner of the plaza, which does one-hour tours to the summit from 2pm on. Buses run every 30 minutes.

A huge cross , built in 1928 and illuminated at night, is a Lima landmark and the object of pilgrimages during Semana Santa (Holy Week) and the first Sunday in May. There is a small museum (admission S1).
