Cerro San Cristobal Funicular - City Park
Santiago - Chile
On a clear day, the view from the top of Cerro San CristÃ³bal is spectacular, providing the best view in the city of the stunning contrast between Santiago and its surrounding mountains. The hill is a popular ride for bikers on nice days, though the steep incline makes for a strenuous trip. Perhaps the easiest - and most unique - way to summit the hill is to take the funicular, which is a cable-pulled trolley that picks up at Pio Nono and takes visitors to the top, where the Virgen de la Immaculada stands waiting with open arms. The funicular also makes a stop at the zoo, for those who want to spend the day in the area.
