In some buildings, especially in the past people used to go up to the roof to hang the clothes out to dry.

In some places, "terraza" is used instead of "azotea".

Or, you might want to say "I went up to the roof to get a better view of the city."

I have a question in English doesn't exist the word subi a la azotea?

For that reason, I wrote got up guessing that it was well written.

But your suggestion is better than my one.

"Subir" es "to go up"; el pretérito indefinido de "go" es "went".
