Sanctuary Of The Immaculate Conception

Sanctuary Of The Immaculate Conception

Nearest Turistik bus stop: Stop 4: Bellavista / Funicular

It is one of the main religious and tourist landmarks of the capital, inaugurated on April 26, 1908 at the top of Cerro San Cristóbal, in the middle of the Easter party presided over by the priest Clovis Montero to celebrate 50 years of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception Conception.

This sanctuary belongs to the Vicariate of Santiago and its statue is a replica of the “Virgin of Rome” by the Italian sculptor Giuseppe Obici; its difference is that it is perched on a half moon instead of a full moon. On December 8, the day of the Immaculate Conception, it is the day that most visitors receive this sanctuary.

Without a doubt this is a must in Santiago de Chile, especially for the tranquility, natural beauty, peace and sight that stands out in this attraction.

The image of the Immaculate Conception measures 14 meters, it also has a pedestal of 8.3 meters and weighs 36,610 kilos. On its pedestal there is a small chapel, work of the French architect Eugenio Joannon, in which, on April 1, 1987, S.S. John Paul II prayed and blessed the city of Santiago de Chile.

There are two easy ways to get to this site. The first is through the Santiago Cable Car and the second is through Cable car Santiago. Both attractions are about 200 meters from this incredible place, you just have to get off at the Cumbre Station from either of the two attractions and walk about 5 minutes to the Virgin.

If you want to enjoy a Mass in this place, you can do it on Sundays at 10:30 and 12:30. We recommend you go with hydration, hat or hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Dress comfortably and use sneakers.
