About Santa Lucia Hill, Santiago

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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • What a great way to spend 1 or 2 hours! Lots of steep stairs but enough shade and flat parts to make this an enjoyable trip. Make sure to bring sunscreen on a sunny day because the last part up to the view tower is without shade. From there, you can see most of Santiago, Cerro San Cristobal with the funiculaire, the Costanera tower, and, if the smog permits, the surrounding mountains. The Japanese garden was a bit of a disappointment, but there were many trees, ferns, and flowers on the way up, so it will still be a delight for people who enjoy plants. There were bathrooms halfway up (300 pesos) and some stands selling water and snacks. Metro stop: Santa Lucia (red line), exit Miraflores.

  • Beautiful place to walk,sit around and enjoy the views , I think weekends is more enjoyable than weekdays

  • These is a place you have to visit in Santiago with your family, friends or bye your self. You will enjoy the beautiful landscape and the gardens plus is a nice place to pass the time to relax and walk at the same time.
