This 409m-high hill to the northeast of Central Lima has a mirador (lookout) at its crown, with views of Lima stretching off to the Pacific (in winter expect to see nothing but fog). 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 . 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 a one-hour round-trip tour to the summit. Buses run every 30 minutes.
