Description

Monte Hacho is an important hill that dominates the city. For this reason, it is a strategic spot, it being in itself a fort, because of its height. In this hill sit the forts of Hacho and Desnarigado, the latter being the present Army Museum. Monte Hacho is crowned by seven peaks. In one of them there is a lighthouse, which gives it its name: La Farola. At the top we find the hermitage of San Antonio, a place where popular pilgrimages are celebrated. Also at the top is San Amaro Park, home to a diverse flora.
