Most part of this territory is a geographical salient of the western ridge of Medellin, which penetrates the valley perpendicularly, embedding some of its hills in the middle of the urban area and providing the district with a 270-degrees panoramic stage that dominates the whole Aburrá Valley and pays tribute to its Altavista
name. Las Tres Cruces Hill, its most recognized attraction, emerges just right there. This is an easily accessible, well-known as pilgrimage, hiking, sports, and walking place that attracts people and families spontaneously.
In other areas of the district, you can find the Altavista House Museum that talks about its history, the Heritage Tourists group, Ecogranja el Manzanillo and outdoor theater, Las Tunas agro-tourism farm, among others.
