We took the gondola to this beautiful site. The view was fabulous you could see the entire city. You can either walk, take the gondola or the funicular to reach this beautiful site.

If you visit Santiago can't miss going to the top by funicular, an old train like elevator and come down by teleférico (modern) or viceversa. Take in account both, at the bottom of the hill, are far away. The almost 360° Santiago view from the...More
