That’s right, what everyone calls Cerro de la Cruz, is actually Cerro de la Candelaria. The cross placed there fairly recently by Antigua Guatemala time standards. Also, from the end of 1a avenida norte you can take 333 steps to the top. The plaque there tells you when were the renovations work done.
Come back tomorrow for a panoramic vista of the city taken from Cerro de la Candelaria.
