Back outside in the main Plaza there are several tours that take you to Cerro San Cristobal. Many tourists take taxis at S/. 50 (around $A20) but if you don't mind a crowded mini bus there are tours that get you there for a mere S/. 5 (around $A2). In addition, the bus tour gives a running commentary (in Spanish) of the various sights on the way.

At the top of the hill is a giant cross where people pray and light candles.
