If the city starts to get to you, put your walking shoes on and climb up the cerro. Take your bathing suit if you want to go to one of the two swimming pools. When you get to the top, make sure to reward yourself with a delicious mote con huesillo.

I took the funicular up just for the novel experience. Once at the top there is a plaza with some little food stands and a lot of viewing areas where you can see much of Santiago laid out. Unfortunately while it was clear the day I went it was very hazy...but you could see the beautiful snow capped mountains. From... More

Took the metro to Baquedano (this is the closest stop) then it's a 15 minute walk to the hill. When you get to the hill look for the castle-type building. This is the funicular entrance. Cost for a round-trip: adult 2000 pesos, child 1500 pesos. (More expensive on weekends/holidays: 2600 and 1950 pesos.). After buying your ticket join the line-up... More

Ok. So the concierge said it would take 20 minutes to the top... Try at least an hour from the gates at the bottom to the very top. But worth it. The climb of about 300m (1.2km along the track) is steady but well worth the views from the top. Enjoy.

We took the funicular up to the top then walked all around the area up there Had a tasty huesillo at the top before we began the long yet nice walk back down to Pio Nono street This is a nice exercise option for the middle of the big city

Either if you want to go for a walk, for a bike ride with some friends, or get the best view or santiago, this is probably the best urban park of south america. It risea 800 meters above sea level, and 300 meters above Santiago. Even it is very nice, quiet and safe, try to avoid carrying expensive equipment if... More

We took the funicular. Seniors get a descent discount. There certainly are places at the peak for panoramic views of the city. Alas, its quite sad to see the city coveted by a blanket of smog?, for otherwise a fantastic view!

This is the highlight of Santiago for me. The sanctuary is peaceful and serene. A good place for contemplation, views of the city, and fresh air.

Visit this place if you have time. Amazing view, you can go up in a fun little train. Up the first stop you have some shops and things to eat, after you can continue walking until the top where there is the sait monument and it is great. I could see from there the skycostanera, the biggest building, and to... More
