Loma de la Cruz (translated as"Hill of the Cross") – the northern highest point of the city. There are 458 steps leading to the top of the hill, on which the observation tower and the observation deck, which offers a panoramic view of the entire city, are located. You can enter the tower, which has suffered a little from time and weather, and feel the spirit of the past centuries. Also on the top of the hill on May 3, 1790, during a severe drought, a cross was erected. Every year on this day, residents of the city of Holguin climb the hill to celebrate this event. Loma de la Cruz is the symbol of the city. It should be borne in mind that the city is located on a fairly flat space and the streets intersect each other in a grid. Architects use this when they come up here and check their plans with the city's development. At the foot of the hill there is always a musical trio performing the famous Guantanamera. and 'Comandante Che Guevara' and an artist selling his work.
