Discovered this place on my early morning run. It was so natural and peaceful in the morning. Beautiful views across the ocean and into Santa Ponsa beach.

In the whole it was a very good experience and the walk there is along the coast and is very beautiful. When you get there the view is very nice of the sea and the monument is a work of art.

I walked to the Cruz del Descubrimiento and look out point from the town. It was a pleasant 20 minute walk and the views were spectacular over the bay.
