The Cerro San Cristobal is deceptively higher than it looks from below, the views across Santiago to the Andes is spectacular. There is a cheap cable car available or a funicular railway, take your choice. Choose as clear a day as possible, the smog will dictate how far you can see

Great gathering green space for people. We took the funicular up and did a circuit with the cable car (teleferico) and then took the funicular down. Bought tickets online for a total price for two adults for $9.31 USD. At the top of the funicular (we did not get off at the midway point which is an option) is a great viewing area of the city (best when weather is clear), a church, statue of St. John Paul 2 near where he said Mass in 1984, and a 45 foot statue of the Blessed Virgin. There are merchandise and food vendors in this area also. Other things to do include a zoo, botanical gardens, wooden playground equipment, and swimming pools.

If you go to Santiago you must visit this place! But unless you are athletic you should get driven to top. Pretty good aerobic exercise walking to top!

This is a great walk and gives some good views of the city. It took us about 90 minutes to walk from the river to the top of the hill and about 30 minutes to walk down. Highly recommended.

We took the calbe car from the older part of the city up the hill and from there walked to the christ statue. A short and nice walk from there through the park gets you to the funicular that brings you down to newer part of the city. Along the way you have a spectacular view of the old and new parts of the city. Its a great and short escape from the hustle and bustle of the city below.
