“Some of the best panorama views of Santiago!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Actually came across this park en route back to the hotel. The fairly vertical trek to the top was very worthwhile and provided amazing panorama views of the entire Santiago skyline. On a clear day, the view extends to the Andes and beyond.

“Park With a Vista”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

In 1872 this former conquistador military stronghold was converted into a beautiful park. The main two sights I thought were of course the view from up top and the Terraza Neptune fountain. The guidebooks said you needed to register showing ID or passport, but no one asked us for this.
The park closes at 7:00 or 8:00 (the guards chase you out) depending on the month, due to security concerns. Unfortunately this was just before sunset, which would be beautiful from the top.

“We had a lovely time going up!”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

I am native Chilean, however I don't live there often neither do I visit often. But this time I took the pleasure in walking up this cerro. The way steep especially on the staircase, but so worth while. Do keep your pockets secure...as pickpockets are around. But the view from the top is just breath taking...it shows the immensity of Santiago, and if you are lucky enough to have no smog...the view to the mountains is amazing.

“great views of the city”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

You can get some great views of Santiago and the surrounding area from the top here. There are a lot of stairs. If you don't think you want tooling to the top, you can still get good views from going about mid way up. There are a lot of flowers and it's neat to learn about the story of the fort and see how it's been preserved. If you're in Santiago, it's a good site to take in if the weather is nice.
