Santuario de la Inmaculada Concepcion, Santiago

4.6
A commanding statue of the Virgin Mary dominates the landscape at Santuario de la Inmaculada Concepcion. Built in 1904 to commemorate the 50-year anniversary of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, the 12 m (39 ft) statue stands on a site sacred to the indigenous prior to colonialism. Visit the church to admire its stone architecture, and step inside to look for several murals and statues. From the top of the hill, you can see over all Santiago and even to the snow-capped Andes. Take a hike up the hill to get there, or for an easier time ascending or descending, ride the funicular or hire a cab.

  • Very peaceful place to come, whether you are religious or not. We enjoyed spending some moments praying in the chapel and sitting on the steps listening to the music and enjoying the view. Some beautiful landscaping next to the chapel on the handicap path.
  • Fantastic spot to really appreciate one of Santiago's most iconic locations located at the summit of the San Cristobal hills. As long as the weather is decent, you can take in the stunning views and grab a panoramic view of the city. The shrine and associated statue is amazing to stand up close and in person to see what's visible from the foothill. Great show of craftsmanship and it's pretty easy to come up here.
