Santa Lucia Hill - Review
The Santa Lucia Hill is a triangular hill standing out in the metropolitan part of Santiago which is presently a Public Park to preserve apart of nature in the city!
It was at the foothill of the Cerro Santa Lucia, that Pedro de Valdivia founded the city of Santiago in the 16th century as a crown to Spain. The hill was used as a strategic place to overlook the city and in the 19th century, the La Marcó and Castillo Hidalgo (Hidalgo Castle) fortifications were added.
Today the park is a good way to escape the commercial side of Santiago and simply enjoy the green pastures and take in the beauty of the Castle which embellishes the hill.

Santa Lucia Hill, Santiago Reviews
A great way to see the Andes and get the city in perspective. Also great people watching with all the local PDA in the park haha. It is easy to combine this with the handicrafts market for an afternoon
Superb place. Well worth the walk
This place is amazing, you can hardly believe your in the city. It's beautiful and it's quiet and definitely the best way to get a decent walk in if your nearby. If your not its worth getting on the metro, bus or car and taking some time to unwind
Centre alternative for Cerro San Cristobal. I was planning to end the Sunday afternoon at Cerro San Sebastián, but already being in the city centre for the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Precolombine Art Museum and running out of time I decided to walk to nearby Cerro Santa Lúcia instead. It takes you about 15 minutes to walk up the hill and climb the final part of stairs. Access is free. On the old fort’s deck you have a 360 degree view of the city and mountains. The Torre Santiago is exactly behind some trees, but you have an alternative viewing point on it plus mountain backdrop from the small park just below the observation deck. Worth the walk and climb if not going to Cerro San Cristobal.
Beautiful. Great place to see all of Santiago. Definitely a great stop when visiting the city. I even ran into people from where Im from in California, USA.
