#108 of 376 in Things to do in Lima
Take in a panoramic view of Santiago's full expanse from the vantage point of Cerro San Cristobal. Smack-dab in the middle of the city, this big hill is a great place to get your bearings, spot famous landmarks, and familiarize yourself with the layout of the city's different sectors. The hill rises 880 m (2,890 ft), with views of everything from the Andes Mountains to the Cordillera de la Costa. Hop on a tour bus for a ride to the top, where you'll find some snack stalls and public restrooms.

  • From San Cristobal Hill there is an indescribable view. Hopefully put more security so that many people are encouraged to get to know what was demonstrated after the accident is forgotten and the lack of interest by the authorities.
