Fodor's Expert Review Cerro San Cristóbal
This large, iconic hill within the centenary Parque Metropolitano is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Santiago. From the western entrance at Plaza Caupolicán (Pio Nono) you can take a steep but enjoyable one-hour walk to the summit, or take the funicular, a historic monument that opened in 1925. After several years of disuse, the teleférico (cable car) reopened in 2016 and ascends from the eastern entrance, seven blocks north of Pedro de Valdivia metro stop. If you have a car, driving up costs 3,000 pesos per vehicle during the week and 4,000 on weekends.
