Located in the department of Cajamarca at a height of 2764 meters above sea level, located on the west side of the Valley and only 2 and a half blocks from the city center. Thanks to its height and its location, the Mirador de Santa Apolonia is the most preferred place for all visitors (500 meters high), and it is no wonder, since from this point you can get a panoramic view of the entire city ( valley and rivers).
Like all tourist places, this lookout also has a name in Quechua, for this place it was "Rumi Tiana", in Spanish "Asiento de Piedra".
In addition to its beautiful view of the city, the beautiful staircases, gardens and capital stand out in the central part of the summit, where each year they celebrate the day of the Virgin of Fatima (May 13).
In its boundaries we can see remains of the ancestors, one of them the famous "Silla del Inca", formed by 2 blocks of stone that emerge from the same hill, and that were carved to give it that shape.
During the seventh century, this place was very popular with the inhabitants of the area, who had a tradition of worshiping rain, lightning and other stars.
