Chile: Cerro Santa Lucia, Santiago.

Santa Lucía Hill  is a small hill in the centre of Santiago, Chile. It is situated between Alameda del Libertador Bernardo O'Higgins in the south, Santa Lucía Street in the west and Victoria Subercaseaux on the east. An adjacent metro station is named after it. The hill has an altitude of 629 m and a height of 69 m over the surrounding area. The hill is the remnant of a volcano 15 million years old. The hill comprises a 65,300 square metre park adorned with ornate facades, stairways and fountains. At the highest point there is a viewpoint popular with tourists visiting the city.

Thanks to Ms Ramon. She says she is a regular visitor to my blog. I am really overwhelmed because  of the thousands of  cards I have received, only 3 or 4 have arrived just looking at my blog. Thanks once again, your cards are on its way.
