  • It is a park that is part of the story of Santiago because that's where Pedro de Valdivia Metro initiated the founding of the city, through to stairs has access to the top of the hill from where you have a spectacular view of the city and the mountains, on clear days, on the north side has a Japanese garden, you can walk peacefully as security around the Park. On the Hill, you will find the exhibition center of indigenous art, and what is best entry is free. The inconvenience is the precariousness of bathrooms, very dirty and bad care and expensive to use, by which charge should be cleaner.

  • This 1870s-era public park is a hill with stunning views from the parapet at the top, beautiful buildings and fountains; lush gardens; sandy walkways and foot-polished stone treads. It's several steps...  more »
  • Be in the Cerro Santa Lucia, the San Cristobal in Central Park makes you remember how important a little green in the middle of a big city, especially in Santiago where the air is so polluted. It is worth remembering that the Cerro Santa Lucia was where the city originated, so the ride is a must. Would you climb walking quietly and the ride takes up one morning. Enjoy the Indian fair annexed to the cerro and handicrafts from across the street.

  • 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.
