At the top of a hill known as Cerrito Del Carmen, is a hermitage dating from the 16th century. Inside there is an image of the Virgen Del Carmen made of embossed silver which was donated by the "barefooted Carmelites" congregation in 1620. As a result the hill was consecrated and given the name of Carmen. From the top of the hill there is a fantastic view of the city center. The sides are covered by trees and vegetation forming a beautiful wood with paths and benches within the city, frequented by vendors, children playing, people strolling, and lots of local visitors at weekends. It is advisable to visit it during the day and preferably with other people.
