“A lovely space in the middle of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

So much to explore in a small space with great views over the city. Lovely little gardens and fountains with some quirky buildings.

“Great views of Santaigo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Lots of steps up there but well worth the views of Santiago and a good place to take photographs the café wasn't opened and we could have done with some water - so take some with you.

“Good view over Santiago”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Take the funicular up the hill and it's a nice to do, especially in the late afternoon when you can still see it during the day time and then the sunset. The view over Santiago and the Andes is great.

“Unbelievable View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is a wonderful place to see Santiago from above. I don't know if they have the funicular anymore as the last time I took it was 2007. My husband insisted on rocking the little gondolas and I wanted to kill him; but it was an amazing ride down.

“Worth the climb”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The views of the Andes and the city below are beautiful. It is a shame that they stopped the cable car from going up as it would have been more fun to go up it instead of a van. The funicular was being repaired when we were there and was told that it is down more than it is up so be prepared.
