  • Great walk inside a free entry Park with a gorgeous view of the city in the end. Visited by both tourist and local families (with dogs!!), it felt like a very safe space. The only thing to consider is...  more »
  • Close to downtown Santiago we can see the city from above with a lot of history. There are Castle, monuments, history of Santiago and Chile. Difficulty rising at some points.

  • Next to Santa Lucia underground/metro station there is this nice little park. The view is great from the top. It has an opening time, better to check it before trip.

  • 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.
