  • We took the funicular down into the city but walked back up the hill, because of the lengthy queues. Perhaps a better idea to do it the other way round. Certainly has great views of the city. Well...

  • Takes about 6 minutes round trip, and the cars fit about 10-12 people. So some quick math for people wanting to know how long it will take waiting in line. You have to buy round trip tickets if you wish to come back down from the hill as well. The view from the top is absolutely beautiful. If you have binoculars or a decent camera with a telephoto lens in your possession, it’s highly recommended. You can see some beautiful buildings from the view you are presented with. Photos do not do this view justice.
  • Nice service that takes you up the mountain in a small rail carriage. When you arrive you can purchase a one way or round trip ticket, the cost is $35 pesos each way, no discount for round trips. Tickets can be purchased at the small ticket window off to the side. Noticed people getting in line without buying a ticket, didn’t see the window, had to go back. Nice view from top, able to take pictures of the city and statue. There are also some vendors around the area selling trinkets.
