Worth the climb of the 200+ steps ! Entrance is not really cheap but the view is wow. (100Kc pp) On the top you will be able to step out the tower and walk around its roof. Don't forget your camera !

It is hard to climb, there are more than 200 steps, but the view what you have pays for your effort. Thanks God you can take a little rest when you are climbing up.

Well, not all would make it to the top. But for those who do, the reward is to die for. The view from the top is just fantastic. The Church anyways, is perhaps among the most beautiful in the City. On top of that, the...More
