climbing San Cristóbal, Santiago

Super popular in Santiago, Chile is climbing San Cristóbal (Christopher) up to the statue of the Virgin Mary.

There are many interesting and odd things to see on the way up.

Local people come to ask Mary for blessings and favours.

Santiago is normally smoggy

Best timing is early evening. Stay until dark.
