  • Absolutely beautiful and marvelous place. No entry, you simply have to give some information when you enter. The nature is beautiful and during the week, the place was not packed. On top there is a platform to view over the city but other than that, you can see a small Japanese garden, a small castle and an adorable church. I absolutely recommend visiting when in Santiago.
  • Great park! Very clean and beautiful. Seems like the city takes very good care of it. If you are not prepared, I must say that you are going to walk a lot and climb a lot of stair. Is very relaxing and peaceful as well. Must visit.
