  • Beautiful location where the tourist can see the city of Santiago, in which nature park's mind and magical place. I loved the ride just didn't go to the lookout, they say the view is beautiful.

  • The ascent of cerro Santa Lucía requires a little more of the legs and courage for those who have a fear of heights. Stairs and ladders, stairs, narrow ... But it was worth it, the view is beautiful!

  • This place is really great! It's a lot of stair climbing but at the top are some wonderful views. You can finally really see that the city is in a valley. Quiet and serene considering the park is nested between two busy roads.
  • We'll maintained. Beautiful views of all of Santiago. Very easy climb up, but steep steps on the Mirador.
  • Santa Lucía hill is a great place to have a good time with your friends or family. It is a historical part of Santiago city. Wonderful views and spots to take amazing pictures.
  • Go there for sunset, last cable car departs at 19h45 in summer. Don't get more con huesillos at the top if you're taking the cable car, go to the tents next to the stairs that lead to the sanctuary, you're gonna pay much much less.
  • A very nice place in the center of Santiago, with a lot of green, beautiful view to the whole city and a magnificent palace on the top of it.
