Whilst the escalators themselves aren’t that amazing, it’s a fab way to get to the top of comuna 13 and see the amazing graffiti and the views over the city. Once at the top make sure you explore as much as possible as there are...More
Took a taxi to try to find the escalators. Most expensive cab drive ever! Lol. The driver got us to the neighborhood but did not know where to drop us off! We finally got out at the bottom of a steep hill. We made our...More

I enjoyed riding the escalators during my visit to Comuna 13 - not the highlight of the trip - that would be learning the history of Comuna 13 and seeing the graffiti, but the escalators certainly made it easier getting up and down the mountainside.
Yes,I believe they are open every day. The escaleras are used by the residents to access their homes located in a hilly area. During my visit some sections were closed for repairs so I used the steps, not the escalator.
