On a rather misty winter morning that happened to be a holiday in Chile, we arrived at the base of the mountain to take a cable car ride up to the Church of the Immaculate Conception. The wait has brief and the ride was smooth...More

This statue of the Virgin Mary sits atop of Cerro San Cristobal with a small shrine at base. You have nice views of Santiago from here and of course you can take the funicular down as well or walk down.

The sanctuary is set inside a peaceful setting, a good place to visit while getting good views of Santiago from on top of Cerro San Cristobal. During the week it was less crowded.

Beautiful statue at the top of the mountain, with a small shrine at its base, lovingly decorated on the walls and ceiling. Spanish music piped throughout the area adding to the visit. Views over the city to the snow covered Andes beyond.

Despite a long wait for travelling to the top it was well worth it, Excellent views over the city and to the snowcapped mountains beyond.

It's a peaceful place, but it was too cloudy to see much so it was disappointing. Time your trip carefully!

This little sanctuary is at the top of Cerro San Cristobal. It is inside the base of the statue, so fairly small and can only hold maybe 7 people at a time, but is a nice little stop if you are already committed to hiking...More

I hiked San Cristobal to get to the top which has a path of beautifully decorated crosses and then the Virgin Mary. So moving and beautiful. Probably one of the best things I did in Santiago.
