Cerro San Cristobal, Santiago
(4.7/5 based on 8,500+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy panoramic views of Santiago at Cerro San Cristobal. The hill rises 300 m (984 ft) above the city, and its slopes form the city's largest park. Wander the shady, green paths, take a stroll through the Japanese garden, see the animals in the zoo, or take a cooling dip in one of two municipal pools. At the summit look for a sanctuary dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, which includes an amphitheater for holding religious ceremonies and a 22 m (72 ft) statue of the Virgin Mary. Pickpockets and thieves sometimes operate in the park, especially during business hours when tourists make up the majority of visitors. Put Cerro San Cristobal into our Santiago vacation trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Santiago.

  • the view is breathtaking on Santiago, but pollution, haze permanently, do not facilitate things. The photos don't do much except maybe on the skyscrapers district, with the snowy Andes are distinguished only in the distance

  • The rise of cable car is extravagant, but the scenery from up there pay. There's room to buy souvenir and eat a snack. Half hour upstairs is enough.

  • One of the best places to visit in Santiago. And also is very easy to get there. There is a lot of green areas and great views. Definitely worth the visit. If you like sports you can do trekking, biking (DH, XC).
  • Very nice view of Santiago and the Andes, the statue is a nice one as well. Good plaza to eat a picnic. A well kept path so it's easy to walk up the hill.
  • This is nice place to walk up and see the city. You must take a cable car up the mountain. Once you reach the top, there is also a church,
  • Esta lindo, muy bn arreglado el pqe metropolitano
  • Mandatory if you're visiting Santiago for the first time! It was the first thing I did in the city which was interesting to have a full perspective of it. The best moment is in the morning while the smog did not cover the city!
