“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

The top of the hill provides you with fantastic views over the city and out the the mountain ranges and the funicular railway was a nice way to get up and down.

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

This is the best view of Santiago. It is easiest to drive up as the funicular was under maintenance. While a bit smoggy the views are spectacular especially at sunset. Sitting at the feet of Mary looking out at the city the most peaceful feeling comes over you. Definitely a must in Santiago.

“Great place but be careful here!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I visted this place. It is a beautiful calm place overlooking the city. However make sure you either get a taxi or the minibus up and down the hill - my friend and I were mugged and beaten-up at knife-point on the way back down. Having said this it is a lovely place to visit but be careful!
