Here are some pics I took on Cerro San Cristóbal (San Cristóbal Hill) is a hill in central-northern Santiago, Chile. It rises 880 m AMSL and about 300 m above the rest of Santiago; the peak is the second highest point in the city, after Cerro Renca.
Cerro San Cristóbal was named by the Spanish- Chilean San Cristóbal family, although its original name is Tupahue (mapudungun: “place of god or gods). The San Cristóbal family held a quarry on the hills south side, close to the Mapocho river. That is why it is called San Cristóbal even if it has a statue of Virgin Mary on the top. The limestone from the quarry was used in the building of the first contentions of the Mapocho river and also in its bridges.
