  • As well as the Cerro San Cristovan, Cerro Santa Lucía is a place to walk and enjoy the view of the city of Santiago. Has 03 or 04 viewpoints and some areas may be accessed with vehicles.

  • Advisable to conmocer is this place, it is full of vegetation and in its upper part allows us to see Santiago in all its glory.

  • We know the cerro Santa Lucia on the last day of the trip and did it quickly, it's beautiful the place, has an ancient castle and climb the stairs to get to the top, from where one has a beautiful view of the city, as we went in the morning, we don't know the fair that I heard have there ...

  • For a city like Santiago, you can get lost in its size and crowds. This is the perfect view of the city you will want. Even on a foggy morning it is rather satisfying. The fountains and park are very welcoming with old cannons and architecture up top
  • Nice place with a nice view of the city. Not a hard climb at all. Worth a visit if near by.
  • Nice place to visit. Even if it's located right downtown is nice and quiet place to take a break, walk and even eat some snack as you enjoy this little oasis. Be sure to visit higher point of the hill, there you can have a nice view of the city. This point is equipped with binoculars. You can visit the castle that keeps historic data about this place.
  • It has a nice view of Santiago once you reach the top of the castle, and it is a charming place. Just going the day time, because it is a dodgy place and you don't want to be there once it's dark.
  • Beautiful. Great for photo spots or just walking around and relaxing. The gem of the city, in my opinion.
