Cerro de la Cruz is a popular "lookout" point above the city. You can access it via a winding road or a series of concrete steps. It was one of the few times we saw people exercising as they ran up the steps for their morning workout.
From the top on a clear day you can see all three volcanoes that surround Antigua - Volcán Agua, Volcán Fuego, and Volcán Acatenango.
The cross, devoted to the city's patron saint, was installed in 1930. It looks south over the city toward Volcán Agua.
