Mirador de la Herradura Lookout

The best views of the city

This may become one of your favorite spots in Santiago, one of those places that you return to whenever you visit the city. And why not? The Mirador de la Herradura offers the best views in town, as the view from the top includes the most iconic buildings in the old town, with the cathedral towering over them all. It's a postcard of great beauty that you will not soon forget; not surprisingly, it's one of the most typical images of Santiago, and while the city has a few other viewpoints, this is certainly the best known of all. When to come? We recommend the evening in the company of your significant other, as the sun paints a truly romantic landscape at your feet. It's located in beautiful Alameda Park, almost at the foot of Santa Susana hill, so it's not at all complicated to get here..
