This is a must do in Santiago. It provides for a comfortable walk, and great views. There are a few shops at the top of the funicular for water or snacks.

Beautiful views and excellent riding for bikes...! Shortest but steepest way up is by the Pio Nono entrance. Longest and less steep way down is by the La Pirámide way...

It's definitely worth visiting the place. You get great views if you're going there by cable car best to go there by cable car and return via the teleferic.
