Architecture activities in Chile
A 2000m-long teleférico runs east from Estación Cumbre. The first stop is Estación Tupahue, around which are clustered the Jardín Botánico Mapulemu, a botanical garden, as well as two huge public swimming pools, the Piscina Tupahue and Piscina Antilén. The cable car continues to Estación Oasis, at the north end of Av Pedro de Valdivia in Providencia (about 10 minutes’ walk from Pedro de Valdivia metro station). The small but perfectly landscaped Jardín Japonés is 400m east. There are snack stands near the cable-car stations, but Cerro San Cristóbal is also a prime picnicking spot.
