... 8220;Cerro de la Cruz”. It was a short walk (maybe 30 minutes) from our hotel, taking the Calle de la Recoleccion and passing by La Merced Church & Convent. At one point we turned to the left and started to ascent towards the Hill of the Cross. After conquering a set of tiring steps leading to the top of the hill we were offered stunning views over Antigua and one of its three dominant features – Agua Volcano (3,766m).
