Pretty gardens with panaramic views

I loved the contrast between the busy streets and the tranquil gardens. The views from the top are well worth the climb.

Incredible collection of plants local and exotic. Mostly Mediterranean climate range. Many large native trees, fountains, historical buildings, statues, shady areas, and great views of Santiago. We choose to walk and it is steep in places; you can drive up the hill if you have a car. Concessions sell popsicles and snacks. There are restrooms for a small fee -... More

The gardens are beautiful and the buildings well maintained. The sight has a fairy tale atmosphere and from the top of the hill you can look out over the city.

We didn't have much time in Santiago so I was grateful for an excellent view and a great excuse for a walk in the city. The views are wonderful, the park is easily accessible and I'd definitely recommend it!

This was a great choice for our first stop in Santiago. The park is beautiful and very historic. The views of the city and the mountains are great. The artists sell souvenirs for a range of reasonable prices.

Cerro Santa Lucia is well worth the visit. It's a huge outcropping right in the center of the city. Take the time to hike all the way up, to see the castle structure at the top as well as to enjoy the views.

It has a lot of history of the foundation of the city of Santiago and that was in 1541 february 12th. It... More

This hill in the middle of the city is incredible, has beautiful water fountains, especially Neptune, very beautiful. We must not stop climbing to the viewpoint of Castillo Hidalgo, after many, many steps you get to this point where you have a 360 degree view of the city! Beautiful! Highly recommended

Great place to walk and take photos! Lovely brick ruins and walking tracks. Gardens are pretty and you wouldn't know you were in the heart of Santiago.
