The Santiago Metropolitan Park is an urban park located within the city of Santiago, capital of Chile. Consisting of the San Cristóbal, Chacarillas and Los Gemelos hills, and the areas of Tupahue, Lo Saldés, Pirámide and Bosque Santiago, the park is located between four communes of Santiago - Huechuraba, Providencia, Recoleta and Vitacura - and covers around 722 hectares, making it the largest urban park in Chile and one of the largest in the world.
A beautiful place to walk, enjoy the view of the city and just get away from the endlessly busy and noisy city below. There's a funicular railway, a zoo and gardens too. It's probably a good idea to always go with others and keep to the main footpaths for your own security.
I would give this a 5star rating if they made the actual walking tracks marked with clearer signs as it favours people who use bikes or take a service taxi. Otherwise when you get to the walking track area it’s a good workout and you are rewarded with great views and a monumental structure of San Cristobal
Great views of Santiago! If you have time there are lots of hiking trails all over the hill instead of taking the bus, gondola and venicular. Definitely worth the extra effort.
Very nice place. During the good weather when the visibility is clear it's possible to see almost whole Santiago. Really worth to go up the hill.
I absolutely love this place. I've been living in this city for a while and Cerro San Cristobal is one of the places I go more often to. Nature, beautiful views, and a wonderful opportunity to unwind and disconnect from the always stressful city life. Come here bicking and you will be rewarded!
Wonderful place, from San Cristóbal Hill you can see the whole city and a great view of de Andes.
