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.

  • Talk a bottle of water with and make the trek up the hill. You will not be disappointed by the experience and the views of the city. If you prefer not to walk down, taxi or funicular is an option. Enj...  more »
  • You can See the Hole Santiago from the top.. They finished the Thelpher way.. NO PARKING AVELABLE ON Weekends 
  • We went on a rainy day, which has strained a little visit, but it is totally worth it. The view is great, the Zoo is very good, the funicular is an attraction and the cable car is a must and accessible and relatively cheap (around r $18.00/person).

  • 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!
