"CERRO SAN CRISTOBAL, a hill close to Barrio Bellavista, rises roughly 900m above sea level and its peak is the highest point in the city, some 300m above the rest of Santiago. From the peak, near the church and the statue of Virgin Mary, one has a fabulous view of the city"

CERRO SANTA LUCIA
"SANTA LUCIA was so named when on February 12th, 1541, at the foot of the hill, Pedro de Valdivia founded the city of Santiago. In 1872, Benjamín Vicuña Mackenna decided to make the hill a new attraction of the European style city. The Alameda entrance was designed by the Architect Victor de Villeneuve and finished in 1902, and on 16 December 1983 Cerro Santa Lucia was declared a national monument"
Next evening we flew back to Madrid and then Lisbon, and that was the end of the 2004 vacation!
