Cerro Santa Lucia is very historically important to the Chilean people, because it was here that Pedro Valdivia decided to found the city of Santiago. The top of Santa Lucia was naturally defensible from any enemy attack.Recommended for:History Buffs

This is a historic spot in Santiago. It's not as strenuous a climb as nearby Cerro San Cristobal but it provides lovely views of all of Santiago, and on a clear day, the Andes. It's kind of cool climbing those old stone paths and thinking about their role in the complex and frequently ugly colonial past of this country.

Located atop a hill in central Santiago, the Cerro Santa Lucía is a beautiful park that offers a number of attractions and one heck of a view. Rising nearly seventy meters above the already over sea level city in which it is situated, the Cerro Santa Lucía's main appeal is at her peak. Views of the city and the surrounding countryside are absolutely breathtaking, leaving only the area directly obscured by the city's central skyscrapers out of the view. The grounds of the park itself is impressively adorned with fountains and statues, including a memorial to one time visitor Charles Darwin. Don't miss your chance to take in this historic city from a historic location. Visit the Cerro Santa Lucía.

Really beautiful construction with great view on Santiago downtown and snowy mountains. There are couple of entrences. Suggest to pass through the park and climb to all the view points. Great view points.
