Cerro Santa Lucia – A little hike for a killer view of Santiago, Chile.

Santiago, Chile was the last destination of mine in South America. As my budget was running low, I didn’t take any tour there at all but just spending time exploring around the city. For a budget travel plan, there is nothing better than visiting nice and entry-free attractions. Then Cerro Santa Lucia came up as an ideal place for an afternoon wander.

Located right in the heart of Santiago and not too far from Plaza de Armas, Cerro Santa Lucia is actually a hill which can be considered as a public park as well. When you are getting enough hustle and bustle of the city center, it is perhaps an escape for you to get in a green oasis right in the middle of the city.

It is a very quiet and peaceful place with gardens, lawns and historical buildings, etc. People normally come here to have a leisure walk around, hike to the top for the city view, or take a rest on the grassy ground in the base of the hill. Seeing people laying down under the shade of trees really makes me want to bring a book here and spend an afternoon just to read it. It seems to be a good place for a picnic and also a favorite spot for couples. The atmosphere was very tranquil, totally different from the chaotic and crowded center.

As I came here for the city view, other things were skipped very quickly. Despite how rush you are, don’t forget to try a cup of fruit slushies near the fountain before going up. It was great for a hot day.

It requires a little hike to go up there. There was a decent city view along the way, too. It was a bit tiring as there were quite a lot of steps to take. However, It was quite rewarding as soon as I reach the fort-like structure on the top and feel a soft breeze. Walk around and find your best spot to take photos. How awesome it is to have a birds-eye view over Santiago from a decent altitude right in the center. Very pleasant experience and definitely worth it.
