Located in the heart of Santiago, Parque Metropolitano is Chile's largest urban park and one of the most beautiful and well-known green spaces in the city. The park has a total area of 722 hectares and covers San Cristóbal, Los Gemelos and Chacarillas Hills and the Tupahue, Lo Saldes, La Pirámide and Bosque Santiago neighborhoods.Cerro San Cristóbal, which you will recognize almost immediately by the imposing statue of the Virgin Mary that stands at its summit, offers panoramic views of the city. You can reach the top on foot, by bike or by car, but the most interesting ways to get there are the funicular and cable car routes. The former departs Calle Pío Nono at the base of the hill, stopping at the National Zoo and the Bellavista Terrace (near the summit). The latter, which runs from the Av. Pedro de Valdivia Norte entrance to the top in just a few minutes, is not recommended for those who are afraid of heights.
