The virgin over the hill

This statue of Virgin Mary was brought from France and is located on the very top of the San Cristobal Hill, the highest point in Santiago (863 m over sea level). You can get there using the skyride, walking or by funicular (I'll show it to you some other day). Masses are celebrated on the top of the hill on special occasions.

Hi Edulabbe:

Bienvenido. Welcome to this community. When I saw your pic I remembered the statue of main square of my city, it was also brought from France.
