Nicely located "park" in the heart of Santiago. Great views of the city. Hope you catch a clear day...smog could be annoying. Wear some comfortable shoes and head-up to enjoy the scenery!

Riding the gondola to the top of Cerro San Cristobal gave great views of the neighborhoods surrounding the area. The art and statute at the top were fun to see.

It is inexpensive to take the cable car and I very much recommend it! With this you're able to see quite a lot of the city, la cordillera, and more! Very relaxing. I would recommend as a Santiago staple.

We took a bus up and the cable car down. The cable car journey was much more fun and allowed one to take better photos of the city and the gardens.
The walk at the top of the hill was pleasant and the view spectacular. Unfortunately it was quite smoggy the day we went up so there wasn't a good view of the mountains.
All in all a worthwhile visit.

Well worth the long, hot walk up, for the 360 view of Santiago. Avoid the tacky cafe at the top, other than for a cold drink!

This is a great place to see all of Santiago! The buses and gondola make a pretty easy trip! There are a number of different park areas with good views. A must do stop to get a good feel for the city of Santiago!

Walk up if you've got the energy, or use the cable cars, or minibuses. Whatever - the views are amazing. Probably best in late afternoon or evening.

I really enjoyed the cable car ride (the funicular is currently closed by the way). The views are great and the church up there is really cool. Lots of good fun.
