Nice hike or bike ride for a day. You have a beautiful view of Santiago, especially after a rain. On the top of the hill you have to taste the "mote con huesillo", very delicious and refreshing.

If you are in Santiago for even a couple of hours, then go to the top of Cerro San Cristobal. The view from here is unparalleled. We took the funicular to the top, it costs $2600 CHP. Get here early to avoid the lines!

From the top, one side the highest view of Santiago City and the other Virgin Mary. Also a good place to buy souvenirs.

The effort in cycling up this hill was all worth it when we arrived at the top! There were plenty of options for snacks and amazing views over the city and to the Andes beyond.

I walked up this hill taking one of the hiking paths. It was very nice doing that in the morning not long after sunrise. I like to hike and enjoy the many impressions on the way. Lot's of runners and bikers around on Saturdays. Had nice weather and, thus, a great panoramic view of the city. There is enough space... More

This is a pleasant excursion that starts with riding a tram up a mountain, where you have the opportunity to stop off at a zoo halfway up. There was a biking event on the day we went, so there were a lot more people than usual near the top. At the end of the tram trip, you can disembark and... More

We had a free day before leaving on our cruise, so we took a private tour of Santiago. One of the stops was Cerro San Cristobal. The day was perfect, no clouds, nice breeze first thing in the morning. The funicular opened at 10 a.m., so we missed the huge line up, as we got there early. One drawback to... More

Do not miss the excellent "Mote con Huesillo" that will refresh your soul! Also the vendors have nice artisan objects and not so expensive. Do not miss when you go to Santiago.

We luckily had the chance to go to the top of the hill on a clear day (many times there is smog covering the city) and had an incredible panoramic view over the whole city. The hill is quite central at Parque Metropolitano and on our walk up we visited the wine museum to learn more about local wine. On... More

It is fun to climb up on the old fashioned cable car to the top of hill. Sitting at the foot of the statue to see the big city, especially before sunset, Orange colored mountains behind the big city, is fantastic. It is little bit cold even April.
