To reach the top of la Gran Piedra you have to climb 459 steps, carved in the stone most of them, there you will find a natural viewpoint with stunning visual, an environment that extends for tens of kilometers, it is was a beautiful experience.

i went with my classmates, we made the whole tour on foot, but the best part was to get to the top and appreciate the panorama, we also visited the coffee plantation Santa Ifigenia. It was the most beautifu experience ever.
