    Don’t miss this gorgeous attraction for pics
    Absolutely loved this attraction. Beautiful architecture, amazing views of city and nice mini hike up to the very top. Took lots of cool pics from here. Also free and easy to get to!

    Great Views, Watch Your Step
    Great view of the city. The view from the terrace closest to the top is the best view in my opinion, as the top is crowded and the tallest building is hidden by a tree (which they seemed to be chopping down when I visited, so that may not be the case anymore. The stairs are worn and slippery, so be careful on the way down and use the handrail.

    Beautiful and historic
    This small hill is the historic center of Santiago and is a restful green space in the city center. There are old buildings and monuments and it did not seem crowded at all. highly recommend a visit - we went twice.

    Worth the walk.
    This is a beautiful site. The walk up the hill is manageable, and the views are very nice. Wear walking shoes and don't forget to sunscreen. We went early in the morning before the heat of the day. They warn you of possible pickpockets.

    Must See!
    I jogged/walked/hiked multiple parks when I came here so had a running pack full of water. This park is mostly climbing - stairs and some cobblestone and some concrete. The stairs are not for someone w balance concerns as uneven and one small railing. Lovely park with great views. Tiolets were locked when I was there and no water available. Bring your own.

    Nice views and gardens
    Lovely park with many places to rest and explore. Beware the steps are uneven and coated with sand so use the handrails and ascent/descend slowly. The view at the top is wonderful. There were two concession trucks in the park when we visited and there was only one entrance off of Merced Street open with a guard requiring you to sign in. Didn’t see any restrooms.

    Nice place to visit
    Nice place to see, in front of one of the stops of the touristic bus, not far from the city center. Historical site in Santiago, Nice building and beautiful view from the top. The walk is quite steep sometimes, narrow steps with handrails. Recommended

    Beautiful view of many kinds of love
    Cerro Santa Lucia is the most beautiful and interesting city park we have ever experienced. The mirador at the top of the park alone is worth all the many crooked steps. You get a phenomenal overview of the surrounding city, and the reflections of the trees in the glittering skyscrapers are worth many photos. Note that the park consists of many levels, each with its attractions, so it's worth moving around the entire fine little hill. In several places in the park, love unfolded so beautifully. We saw both men and women - and men and men - kissing passionately and completely undisturbed. Lovely to experience such great tolerance here in South America.

    Great views
    Nice spot to walk about and get some great views of the city. Some spits afford vistas of old snd new architecture, side by side. Old seems to be shorter and bigger individual apartments whereas the new structures are taller with smaller units. Pleasant. Worth a visit.

    Historical & Iconic Park!
    Explored this historical Park whilst visiting Santiago. It is very big, well maintained and filled with statutes, some old buildings etc. There are some steep steps to climb if you want to get to the top and have a panoramic view of the city and can see the Andes Mountains in the distance on a clear day! In the beautiful Park, there is also a big statue of the founder of Santiago in the garden. There are seats scattered all around the park should you wish to take a rest whilst exploring and you would need comfortable shoes!

Medium sized park on a steep hill in the center of city, was surprised by how large it was in the city. Some walk paths and flights of stairs are uneven and steep, but reaching the top is so worthwhile. Plan enough time to explore. I suggest go in late afternoon to explore 90 minutes before sunset and then head to the top for sunset views.

This cerro is very close to my hostel. I was here in 2022 and really enjoyed it. As I have friends that have never seen snow, I wanted to take pictures of the snow covered mountains. I found the walk up and around the cerro to be great! I need the exercise and really enjoyed getting out to see this again. Some of the rock stairways are a bit slick so taking all the time you need is important. The views and fresh air are spectacular! There is a small Indigenous fair near the entrance that is well worth a look too.

We enjoyed visiting this park, where at the top of the hill a pleasant view of Santiago can be found. For those visiting on a budget this will also help to forgo the need to visit the paid-for skyscraper viewing deck, which, if I recall, was not triflingly cheap. Better still, in my view, was the fountain area and large Chilean flag at the bottom of the park — we really enjoyed the colours and architecture; it made for a beautiful spot to take some photos.

This was a surprising discovery for us as we walked downtown near Londres-Paris. Lovely gardens and buildings, wonderful view from the top. Not much information displayed on the history.
