Less touristy than its neighbor Monserrate Hill, the hill of Guadalupe houses a shrine two miles above sea level. The first chapel on this hill, which was built in 1656, was destroyed by four earthquakes, the most recent of which was in 1917. Walk up an unpaved road to visit a chapel and admire the 50-foot statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe, which can also be seen from the city.
