San Cristóbal Hill, Santiago

4.7
#1 of 617 in Parks in Chile
Enjoy panoramic views of Santiago at San Cristóbal Hill. The hill rises 300 m (984 ft) above the city, and its slopes form the city's largest park. Wander the shady, green paths, take a stroll through the Japanese garden, see the animals in the zoo, or take a cooling dip in one of two municipal pools. At the summit look for a sanctuary dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, which includes an amphitheater for holding religious ceremonies and a 22 m (72 ft) statue of the Virgin Mary. Pickpockets and thieves sometimes operate in the park, especially during business hours when tourists make up the majority of visitors. Our Santiago trip planner makes visiting San Cristóbal Hill and other Santiago attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We arrived very early and already had a small queue that increased a lot in a short time, we recommend to go in the morning. The ascent of funicular is unique, a wonderful work of engineering. From the top is that we have the dimension of the mountain ranges unbelievable. A very large spiritual aura emanfrom the site.

  • It was one of the coolest tours we ever made in the city. We climb from funicular and down on the cable car! The view from the top is beautiful, there are stalls to make a snack, buy souvenirs and even a church. Very cool, I think it's a mandatory stop for tourists in Santiago. We got there by subway, very easy, just get off at Baquedano station and follow straight towards Plaza Italia.
