The trip to Chile - El cerro San Cristobal

The Cerro San Cristobal located on the Northern side of the Mapocho River is Santiago´s Hikers, runners and Bikers haven.

It has two access points that bring you to the top of the hill, along the climb, be it running walking or biking you have several lookout points. Mind you Santiago is pretty polluted, so you probably have to find a nice after rain time to get a nice view of the city skyline.

 Once you make it to the top, you ll find the Sanctuary of the Immaculate Conception crowned by a statue of the Virgin Mary.
there´s also an ex voto wall in which devotees leave candles and thanksgiving plaques.
