Floating over 2,500 feet above Santiago is the gleaming white statue of the Virgen de la Inmaculada Concepción atop Cerro San Cristóbal, St. Christopher's Hill—the highest point in the capital that is not the Andes. One of the most fun, and easiest, ways to get to the top is via the old funicular train, constructed in 1925. As it steeply ascends the hill, the city and its valley spreads out below with sweeping views.
