How to get here?

Many people ride bikes or take taxis, while others use Turistik’s “Hop On – Hop Off” service, but the majority of visitors arrive via car or on foot. If you are unsure of the best way to get to one of Santiago’s most important tourist attractions, search here for the most convenient alternative.

Construction on the funicular railway began as part of a major project to develop San Cristóbal Hill

A ceremony was held on November 24, 1923 to lay the first stone of the station for the starting point of the funicular railway. Located alongside Plaza Caupolicán, this station was designed by renowned architect Luciano Kulczewsky to resemble a medieval tower and was built using stone quarried from the very same hill.

Complementary promotions, you can combine Funicular tickets with other attractions!
