My brother-in-law who wanted to see this thing, he didn't even attempt the climb... I would have liked to do other... More

    “Excellent View of the City (and possible exercise) ”
    Each time I visit the city of Holguin I now try and make an effort to climb the many stairs of Loma de la Cruz for exercise, and to experience a great view of the city. Most people drive to the top of the hill for the view, take pictures and perhaps have a beer or snack (there is a... More

    “So worth the climb of 470 steps in 33 degree weather and a blazing sun. ”
    After taking a small city tour that only stopped at the bottom and hearing the guide say that the cross was at the top but we wouldn't see it. I decided to take the two free hour hours we had and go to it. Depending if you take the small tour from your hotel that is 15$, they will drop... More

    “stunning ”
    Travel up to the top of the hill and see what the city really looks like. A place also for both reflection and remembrance.

    “Great view of the city, day and night ”
    High enough to orientate you to the city of Holguin and the surrounding area. Souvenirs and snacks are available. Taxi, car or bus recommended unless you are a mountain climber.

    Beautiful place. Great view of Holgin! Due to a bad ankle, was not able to attempt climbing the 438 steps but would have loved to do it. Great restaurant at top and best service.

    “A place of interest ”
    We took a taxi to holguin to visit the cross and other places. Our driver took us straight to the top and waited while took photos and admired the view over the city of holguin. I am not sure whether it is the original wooden cross the priest took up the hill, but it is a point of historical interest... More

    “Beautiful. ”
    We took a tour of Holguin last week which included a visit to Hill of the Cross. My husband and I (and most of the people on our tour bus) climbed the 458 steps to the top. What an amazing view and experience.
