  • Great place to spend some time while visiting Santiago.
  • Very beautiful. Its has a great view in the top. Free access
  • Mount Cerro Saint Lucia, 230 meters above sea level, was originally a military fortress built in 1541. It is free to enter but needs to fill in tourist information. It is a perfect combination of Spanish aristocratic architecture and green hillside garden. Walking along the mountain path, you can overlook the surrounding street view and the Andes.
  • Great place to explore. I’m sure you can go several times and each of them find something new and different. I think what I like the most is precisely that, because you feel like in a big maze. Seeing Santiago from the high of this little mountain is amazing, you’re able to see all the Andes mountains from here and is really beautiful. So if you like to take pictures, this is your place because you will see that you can capture great moments.
  • This was probably one of the most interesting area of Santiago. A beautiful residence once upon a time but it seems it's in ruins and not well kept. Apart from that, there are interesting nooks here and there so anticipate to walk quite a bit to see it all. The best part is making your way to the highest point and you a see a beautiful view of the Andes and Santiago cityscape.
