Cerro Calvario, Copacabana

#4 of 10 in Things to do in Copacabana
Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Lookout
Gain a panoramic view of the surrounding area from Cerro Calvario, a hill littered with small monuments representing the 14 Stations of the Cross. Climb the hill with pilgrims making their way to the top, and admire the monuments built here during the 1950s. Along the route--which takes about half an hour to walk from start to summit--you'll see fortune-tellers and native priests burnings candles and offering blessings. The view from the top is extensive and uninterrupted, while the monuments photograph well against the backdrop of the water and the town. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Copacabana trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
