Mirador del Cerro San Cristóbal (The Viewpoint of Cerro San Cristóbal)

Panoramic views of the city.

For both clear days and orange sky sunsets, the excursion to the 'Mirador del Cerro San Cristobal' is a great occasion to see a panoramic view of Lima in all its magnitude. Located at 400 metres above sea level, the Hill is a destination for religious pilgrimages to visit its cross, which is supposed to have miraculous properties. You can start the ascent by simply walking up it or you can take a bus - called 'urbanitos' - these buses leave on weekends from the 'Plaza de las Armas' and do a touristic tour to the Hill for two dollars. At the top of the Hill, there's an explanatory museum of the place, which includes an exhibition of old photographs of the old Lima and recreations of common people, such as 'candle sellers' or the 'tapada limeña', a typical woman's dress in the 16th century that only left one eye uncovered.
