Cerro San Cristóbal & Funicular - Santiago de Chile (HD)

El cerro San Cristóbal está ubicado en Santiago, la capital de Chile. Con una altitud de 880 msnm y una prominencia de 280 m, es el segundo punto más alto de la ciudad, solo superado por el cerro Renca. El cerro se encuentra entre las comunas de Providencia y Recoleta, teniendo a sus pies al Barrio Bellavista. El cerro San Cristóbal es parte de un conjunto de montañas, junto a los actuales cerros Chacarillas o Tupahue, su cerro hermano; Los Gemelos y La Pirámide, que forman parte del Parque Metropolitano de Santiago, el parque urbano más grande de Chile y uno de los más grandes del mundo, con aproximadamente 722 hectáreas de extensión.

Cerro San Cristóbal began to be used in 1903 with the installation of the Mills Observatory, currently known as the Manuel Foster Observatory, twin of the Lick Observatory of the University of California. On its summit there is a sanctuary dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, with a 22-meter statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, an amphitheater and a chapel. The statue of the Immaculate Conception measures 14 meters tall, and the pedestal on which it rests is 8.3 meters in height. It weighs 36,610 kilograms.[2] Within the pedestal there is a small chapel in which Pope John Paul II prayed and blessed the city of Santiago on April 1, 1987. The statue is lit up at night by lights placed on its sides, allowing it to be viewed from all over Santiago both day and night. At the foot of the statue there is an amphitheater for holding masses or other religious ceremonies. Near the statue, there is also a small chapel for praying. At the foothills of Cerro San Cristóbal are the Chilean National Zoo and a Japanese-style garden, and up there are also two municipal pools, Tupahue and Antilén. Cerro San Cristóbal houses Santiago's largest public park: the Santiago Metropolitan Park (Parque Metropolitano).
