Went in early or mid morning. Found many of the gates closed, so ended up walking almost all the way around the perimeter. The north end was open. Walked up various paths and roads to get to the very top. The views were just so-so as the air was hazy. Could barely see the Andes mountains to the east.

This place is a beautiful combination of nature and architecture, it has several gardens and constructions. We follow the trail all the way up to the viewing tower, the highest point where we enjoyed a panoramic view of the city. Lots of stairs but totally worth the little effort; don't miss it!

On a clean day we climbed the stairs to the top of the mountain. It was a good hike and the views very good. On the way down we took a road which was easier on our knees

It was a hazy day so we couldn't really see the mountains clearly. But the hill and castle have atmospheric outlooks and terraces to wonder around, and it's not far at all from anywhere in the centre.

A park in the middle of the city, entering you can already feel the difference in the air. There's some spots to take pictures and a beautiful view for the Santiago.

This park is beautiful and scenic in its own right.Lots of different easily navigable paths and stone stairways with a wide variety of tree and plant life and classical architecture like Neptune's Garden and Castillo Hidalgo.After a surprisingly brief and easy climb you get panoramic views of Santiago and bits of the Andes , plus there are multiple levels from...

This is the smallest of the two cerros in Santiago city centre, but don't let that put you off. It affords some super views of the city, is a lovely place to walk around and meet some of the local people. The mausoleum at the top was closed when we visited, but the gardens are pretty. It's a good taster... More

It is a nice walk but definitely not a tour-de-force. Would only recomend if you are in the area and have spare time.

I vvisited Cerro Santa Luci entering from the back of the park instead of from Alameda. This meant less of an uphill climb. There are some nice views of parts of Santiago and Fort Hidalgo is interesting to climb around. I spent about two hours walking around this hill and came down and exited on Alameda.
