This is a really nice walk.
Not to strenuous, but solid if you walk all the way up.
Can get crowded and beware of the blazing bikes coming down.

…..Once you emerge from the cable car at Estacion Cumbre its just like a trip on a pilgrimage for the road up is steep and wind-dii. All along the way you will encounter many different large crosses depicting different scenes of the Crucifixion of Jesus and other scene painted in bright – colours, some more pleasant then others which are rather sombre and invokes a bit of sadness and inner reflection. Each cross also delivering a message to the visitor or onlooker and written in Spanish but easy to absorb or understand. Whilst you are making the ascent you also have the pleasure of enjoying the beautiful picturesque panoramic views of the city of Santiago below and even more beautiful is the snow-covered Andes Mountain in the distance. When you are almost at the top you find an adorable church built out of stone, not very often you can make an encounter like this, you can even take some time to enter and sit down and reflect and become quiet with in. The inside of this building is beautiful-lii made-up of cement imagery (murals of Mary) of the Crucifixion of Jesus and also other scenes reflecting this unimaginable event of more then 2000 plus years ago. Real food for thought! After this few moments of reflection as you come out of the church you see this awesome sight of this mammoth pure-white statue of the Virgin Mary with her outstretched arm over the whole of Santiago. Absolute-lii impressive to just to stand still and survey this great wonder before you. Then to get there you have to climb many steps as the sign reads “Subida a La Virgen” = Ascent to the Virgin! This massive statue stands on the roof of a small chapel and when you enter in you are greeted by love-lii murals painted on the walls again in nice bright live-lii colours and also many bible verses. There are beautiful gardens around here that are well cared for. Also a Wall of Remembrance is to be found here where the ashes of ones loved ones can be placed, As is reported that the Arch-Bishop of Santiago once said “the memorial in the sanctuary to be close to his loved ones waiting for the resurrection. At the gardens over looking Santiago the garden is designed in an outdoor amphitheater with wooden seating where down below an altar is probably to be used to conduct services(mass) here on special occasions. An array of church bells can also be found here and also a memorial in honour of San Juan Pablo 11. There are a few places where food or snacks can be purchased, this is a must visit place when in Santiago whether you climb-up the hill by foot or if you come up with the cable-car………………….

This hill gives excellent views of Santiago and the Andes Mountains. Some nice places to eat, too. The Virgin Mary is impressive.

This place needs to be part of your staying in Santiago. It has a perfect view of this city. I suggest you to begin this tour using cable car and conclude with funicular to avoid long lines.
Please, consider to go in a good weather to you look Andes mountain range.

Go early, the place gets really crowded fast.
You will need almost a day to see everything, but if you are just going the see the view point and ride the cable car, a half day would be enough.
