Mountain
“Not to be missed! Very busy at Easter, as thousands attempt the climb to this local mountain peak, stopping at at 13 Catholic prayer stations all along the way up - and up - and up some more! Pay only 10 Pesos to park your car at the base. Non-Catholics are also most welcome to get some good exercise and fresh air - it can be quite cool higher up the mountain! Top tip: Bring/carry your own mineral water and/or beer to drink when you arrive at the top!”
