El Cristo Panoramico, Taxco Tourist Information

The walk to the El Cristo Panoramico view point is by steep streets that can be very tiring, for the less adventurous taxis can take you to the summit for 50 pesos.

The best time of the day to visit the El Cristo Panoramico of Taxco is just before sun set as the last rays of the sun illuminate the hills in a golden color.

The town then transforms slowly as the lights of the city come on with the Santa Prisca church magnificently standing at the centre of Taxco.
