Natural Feature
“-Holguin’s hillside overlook and shrine – called the Loma de la Cruz (Hill of the Cross) – is the crown jewel of the city. You can grab a taxi or my favourite climb it's 458 steps to the top of the hill, where a bar/restaurant, perched some 850 feet above sea level, overlooks the verdant hills surrounding the city. The hill gets its name from the wooden cross placed here in 1790 by a Franciscan friar. There's also a mini Art gallery that features talented local artists! Enjoy the Panoramic view of Holguin city!

“Famous for being the place from where Pope Francis blessed the city in his pastoral visit. It is accessed by two ways, either up 458 steps or by road. At the top of the hill is a cross that dominates the city and a Spanish fort, and two local restaurants.”
