The funicular railway historical monument of Santiago that dates from 1925, is a comfortable, entertaining and very traditional way to climb the hill San Cristóbal. Its 500-meter route has 3 stations, the central station located at the main pedestrian entrance (Pio Nono 450), the zoo station, and the top station where you must reach if you want to visit the viewpoint of the Virgin of Cerro San Cristobal.

The funicular stations were designed by the Chilean architect Luciano Kulczewski, of whom you will see several relevant works during your visit to Santiago. A good idea is to climb to the top on the funicular and then walk down to enjoy this vegetal lung of Santiago.

To visit Santiago you must be between one and two weeks, this is because it is an area in which there are many tourist attractions that you can not miss.
