Cerro De La Loma Larga

Cerro de la Loma Larga (literal English for: Long Hill Mountain), or Loma Larga (short version) located in the Monterrey, Nuevo León metropolitan area is a lower extension of the Sierra Madre Oriental, in particular an eastern extension of Cerro de las Mitras.

The hill has long been considered the natural division of the now adjacent cities of Monterrey and San Pedro Garza García.

For its short range of about 10 kilometers it is flanked on its northern side by the Santa Catarina River, and on its southern side, the Sierra Madre Oriental in almost full height.

Its nearby geological companions make of it a rather unremarkable elevation, and residential areas, shops, high buildings and freeways have been constructed all over it.

The Diana Cazadora statue marking the joint of Monterrey and San Perdo Garza García was placed along a busy avenue (Gonzalitos) crossing over the hill. The government's local TVstation, Canal 28 is located on it. And the Basílica de Guadalupe in Monterrey is also located on the hill, among other churches.

In the early 2000s the state's government project of a tunnel giving way between Monterrey and San Pedro Garza García was done, having the Loma Larga Tunnel finally finished.

Some other known mountains or elevations of the zone are: Cerro de la Silla, Cerro de las Mitras, the Sierra Madre Oriental and Cerro de Chipinque -with its famous M-shaped figure-, the Cerro del Topo Chico, Cerro del Obispado and La Huasteca.
