Cerro San Cristobal, Santiago

(10,000+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
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.
