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.

  • From the Centre a short walk away from this oasis of pleasure; acanthus plants in bloom and benches to relax, all around the town

  • You have to climb many stairs to reach the mirador. Apparently there is a lift which as we were told, was broken when we visited the place. It is worth climbing the stairs, both by the Park which I thought was very nice, as per the mirador, which offers great views.

  • A great way to see the Andes and get the city in perspective. Also great people watching with all the local PDA in the park haha. It is easy to combine this with the handicrafts market for an afternoon
  • Superb place. Well worth the walk
  • This place is amazing, you can hardly believe your in the city. It's beautiful and it's quiet and definitely the best way to get a decent walk in if your nearby. If your not its worth getting on the metro, bus or car and taking some time to unwind
  • Centre alternative for Cerro San Cristobal. I was planning to end the Sunday afternoon at Cerro San Sebastián, but already being in the city centre for the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Precolombine Art Museum and running out of time I decided to walk to nearby Cerro Santa Lúcia instead. It takes you about 15 minutes to walk up the hill and climb the final part of stairs. Access is free. On the old fort’s deck you have a 360 degree view of the city and mountains. The Torre Santiago is exactly behind some trees, but you have an alternative viewing point on it plus mountain backdrop from the small park just below the observation deck. Worth the walk and climb if not going to Cerro San Cristobal.
  • Beautiful. Great place to see all of Santiago. Definitely a great stop when visiting the city. I even ran into people from where Im from in California, USA.
