Chile: Santiago from Cerro San Cristobal

September 7th, 2006

High above Santiago is the Cerro San Cristobal, a Andean foot-hill that towers over the city from where you can see everything on a clear day. Both our days in Santiago were clear days, so we were quickly lucky to get the best views possible.

The Cerro is 840m high, which is much higher than anything man-made in the city, with the exception of the statue of the Immaculate Virgin that stands on top of the cerro – but that’s cheating.

We took the cable-cars to the top and took these photos of the city.
