This is basically the same thing as Cerro Santa Lucia. It’s a fun time exploring the castle and it’s pretty views of Santiago. It’s just a few blocks from Plaza del Armas! Go check it out!

Good respit from city, with places to recline on grass or sit on a bench. Quiet fountains. Did not enter the castle (closed that day). Security helpful with directions, keeps list of countries of travelers.

This magnificent park is located in the Lastarria area of Santiago. It is well worth a visit as is the climb to the top of the Castillo Hidalgo.

It's a climb to the top of the hill and Castillo Hidalgo, but the 380 view is worth it. It a great park area with various walkway (steps) to the top. The Castillo is only open for special events.

Located at the top of Cerro Santa Lucia, there's not much left of the castle but the picturesque walls. However, you come here for the magnificent views of Santiago and the snow-capped Andes in the distance.

The park is only accessible to tourist vehicles, locals are requested to walk from street level to the summit. From the upper car park there is still a steep climb up a series of stone stairs to the viewing platform on the tower top. Views...More
