It's a bit of a hike (about 300 feet (100 meters) elevation change) but if offers a very beautiful view of the city. Both times I was up there I have always met interesting people to talk with. It's worth the effort.

This is a must hike if you are visiting Antigua, it is an easy walk, well worth it, you can also take a taxi up there if you do not want to walk
