San Cristóbal Hill, Santiago

4.7
#1 of 579 in Parks in Chile
Must see · Mountain · Lookout
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.

  • Was there on the weekend. Not so crowded as expected. Many bikers and walkers. Quite relaxing. Surely will visit again - next time the Zoo and the botanical garden also.
  • a very interesting place to be. Even though you're in the middle of the city, once you're up there, you will not only have a beautiful view of the beautiful city, but also barely hear the city noises.
