It's located in one of the plaza and many locals come here to admire the church and grab a view of the volcano misti in the distance. Had to join in and pose for a pic like everyone else!

Small manicured trees park area, and some architecture. Mirador has a decent view of the city. Beware the lower mirador area, there are lots of handicrafts tables where people will try to sell you stuff.

My accomodation was close to it, and I wanted to have an undisturbed view over Misti. Unfortunately it wasn't really possible because the best places were occupied with stalls of touristy gift sellers. I believe however, that the place became too much attached to Misti and see only as a view point. The rest seems to be underrated, including the... More
