Santa Lucía Hill

Santiago, Chile

Stroll to the center of Santiago and you’ll spy the remnant of a 15 million-year-old volcano. Today, Santa Lucia Hill is a popular local park, complete with ornate stone decorations, stairways and fountains. Offering one of the best views of the city below, the view, Charles Darwin once proclaimed, is “certainly most striking.” The best time to visit? Noon -- a cannon shot is fired each day from Fort Hidalgo, located along the hill, at exactly that hour.
