Fodor's Expert Review Monserrate Heights Mirador

Matanzas Viewpoint
For a spectacular view of the city and the bay, hire a taxi to take you up to Monserrate Heights, a pleasant park that's also the site of La Ermita de Monserrate, a handsome, colonial-Spanish style church. Built in 1875, the church is a shrine to the patron saint of Catalonians who emigrated to Cuba. The view in the opposite direction is of the Yumuri River valley. If you manage to make the long, uphill climb here, there is a snack bar in the park where you can refresh yourself.
