Cerro San Cristobal, Santiago

Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 8,000+ 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.

  • 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).
  • 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!
  • buen deporte
  • Breathtaking views of the city & mountains. Take the 5min funicular ride up or walk. Definitely worth a stop on visit to Santiago.
  • Great site to do outdoors sports.
