the pilgrims of the city of santafe met for the eucharist in a small chapel dedicated to the holy cross of monserrate, then hill of snow. the plebiscite Pedro Soliz promoted the expansion of the chapel and the foundation of the chapel that was called Our Lady of the Cross of Monserrate. the plebismus promoted the adaptation of a path to the hermitage pariah from the church of the snows, located at the foot of the hill. the temple remained standing until an earthquake when it was necessary to rebuild it.
the chapel was replaced by a church of a different construction due to the earthquake. It was transformed by a church that is currently preserved.

It is reached by cable car or funicular or by a demarcated path. It is a good walk where you can visit the sanctuary, walk, enjoy the view and eat at one of the restaurants.
