Park Landmark Must See
Relax at Cerro Santa Lucia: an ancient volcano that today serves as a green refuge in the metropolis of Santiago. The entirety of the hill, which reaches a height of 69 m (226 ft) over the surrounding area, enjoys tremendous popularity among locals and visitors. Wander the pathways, enjoy the cool shade, and admire the many statues and monuments--including an iconic white and yellow facade. A viewpoint at the summit provides commanding views of the surrounding city. Plan a Santiago trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • A beautiful place to stroll, with beautiful gardens and an incrivél lookout, great to meet Santiago from above and the best for free!

  • A little of Santiago's history is in this park, right in the city center. A castle surrounded by very green, fountains, climbs and descents, stairs, monuments and lookouts. Very good for photos and to know the city above, with the bottom of the mountain ranges. Easy metro access and admission is free, just ask to sign the guest book. It needs a little maintenance, but nothing to ruin the ride. It's worth it.

  • Just not to stop going, but without interesting attractions, old place with narrow access and upon reaching the top an overcrowding. Vista 360 degrees interesting, but it's hitting a photo and getting out.

  • Absolutely beautiful and marvelous place. No entry, you simply have to give some information when you enter. The nature is beautiful and during the week, the place was not packed. On top there is a platform to view over the city but other than that, you can see a small Japanese garden, a small castle and an adorable church. I absolutely recommend visiting when in Santiago.
  • Great park! Very clean and beautiful. Seems like the city takes very good care of it. If you are not prepared, I must say that you are going to walk a lot and climb a lot of stair. Is very relaxing and peaceful as well. Must visit.
  • This is a must-visit in Santiago. It offers a great view and is like a small oasis in the middle of the city. If you are physically able you can climb quite far up the hill to have an awesome view.
  • Lovely little gem of a park. Worth a visit for the views of the city and surrounding mountains, greenery, and interesting architecture. Be prepared for narrow, irregular stairs to get up to the very top (handrails provided). No elevator - looked like it hadn't operated in years. Daily cannon salute at Noon from the mezzanine.
  • A beautiful walk up with incredible gardens. Don’t miss it.
