Just beware of the few hundreds of steps you need to climb to get there, and don't go there at night.

Its a huge bird visible from the city centre but in order to get a close up view or getting up real close one needs to climb many many steps thus recognizing the work required that elevation we very smartly did not go up.

The walk up the stairs was quite a hike up. But the views are amazing and we took our time. We went with our guide since he said he wasn't sure if was safe for us to walk up there by ourselves.

The mirador is signposted from Plaza de Armas, but then becomes a bit harder to find (I just asked people where it was and they told me). It involves quite a bit of uphill walking, culminating in 559 steps (yes, I counted them). Don't attempt...More
