Top 3 Santiago attractions

Number 1: Cerro San Cristobal - In Santiago there is an enormous hill in the middle of the city. His name is “Cerro San Cristobal”. People use the hill to hiking and running. Around this hill's road there are places to make barbecues and picnic. There are 2 swimming pools also: Antilen and Tupahue. In the summer those pools are the most popular of the city. In the top of the hill there is a beautiful statue of the Virgin Maria. This is the religions holidays center for the catholic devotees.
Number 2: Museo Parque de las Esculturas - Next to the Mapocho river, there is an interesting place. His name is Museo Parque de las Esculturas (Sculpture Park Museum). It is an outdoor museum where there are a lot of statues from different countries sculptors. In my opinion the most beautiful sculpture in there, is the “Toro”. Its material is forged steel, and his author is Sergio Castillo.
Number 3: Plaza de Armas - Plaza de Armas is the geografic politic center of Chile. Around it there are a lot of historical buildings, such as the Central Post Office Building, the Metropolitan Santiago Cathedral, the Firefighters Building, and the Historical National Museum. In his sidewalks there are a lot of artists that sold his paintings.
