  • Cerro Santa Lucia is one of the many parks you can visit in Santiago, but it is one of the few that can give you such great views. There are a lot of stairs and historic buildings, really beautiful.  more »
  • This place was so pretty! It is quite a hike in some places but the architecture and views are worth it all. Our group enjoyed the hike!  more »
  • Definitely worth doing as the views out to the Andes mountains are awesome as well as the monuments. Nice walk and is a real haven amongst the busy city  more »

  • Great view of the local area from here. Cool old castle-like building on top. Can get crowded. Park around the base is well maintained.
  • Fun way to see this place is running on Sundays... The road to it is shut down, and you can run right to it! It's also a nice place for a stroll while you check out some nick backs! Beautiful views too!
  • Incredible view on Santiago, go there just after a rainy day (no pollution, no smog) to see the mountains and and the sunset.
  • This is a public park where you can walk around, the top of the hill has great view of the city. Entry is free but you just have to sign a registry upon entry. Entry is towards the southwest side near the park.
  • A quick walk to the top (20 minutes) or you can take your time and meander through the many of the levels (1-2 hours). It's an absolutely beautiful park and has a great view from the top!
