Santiago Travel Guide

Bellavista

If you happen to be in Santiago on one of those lovely winter days when the sun comes out after rain has cleared the air, head straight for Parque Metropolitano. In the center is Cerro San Cristóbal, a hill reached via funicular railway, cable car (suspended indefinitely in 2009), or automobile. A journey to the top of the hill rewards you with spectacular views of the city nestling below

the snow-covered Andes Mountains. In the shadow of Cerro San Cristóbal is Bellavista. The neighborhood has but one sight—the poet Pablo Neruda's hillside home of La Chascona—but it's perhaps the city's best place to wander. You're sure to discover interesting antiques shops, little art galleries, and adventurous and colorful eateries.
