Cerro de la Cruz (Hill of the Cross)

Jala

During your trip to Jala the itinerary should include a visit to the Cerro de la Cruz, located towards the Barrio de la Natividad where every May 3rd it is visited by the pilgrims who go up to decorate it with flowers to celebrate the Día de la Cruz (Day of the Cross).

It has a path that facilitates access to the summit to reach the white cross embedded on a cement base.

As you climb, you can enjoy the beautiful nature surrounded by oak and cedar forest.

From the top you can appreciate the beautiful postcard scenery that the city gives you and in which the Basilica Lateranense de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción stands out.

It is worth noting that to climb the hill you must pass by the Santuario de la Natividad (“Sanctuary of the Nativity”), a temple with a mystical atmosphere because of the history surrounding the Virgin of the Nativity.
