This sanctuary has the best possible views of Santiago. It is breathtaking to see all of Santiago laid out before you with the Andes as a backdrop. More importantly, it is a wonderful shrine to The Immaculate Conception. As such it is a perfect spot...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.
