This rocky outcrop is crowned by the Santuario de Monserrate church, which offers spectacular views back down on the seemingly endless urban sprawl that is Bogotá. To reach it, you have the choice of a funicular railway (mainly mornings) and a cable car (teleférico, mainly afternoons). Alternatively, when it’s open, it’s a ninety-minute trek up the 1500-step stone footpath that begins at the base of the hill and leads to the summit 600m above. **Be aware that there are reports of robberies both on the way up the hill and also on the walk between the Quinta de Bolívar and the cable car and funicular stations.** The safest (and cheapest) time to go is Sunday, when you’ll be accompanied by thousands of pilgrims hoping for miracles from the church’s dark-skinned Christ.
