Following San Cristóbal Hill, Cerro Santa Lucía is another hill in Santiago that offers killers views. On its top, two castle-like forts were built in the 19th century. They were finished in 1820. The place features many statues and monuments and is a nice place to visit if you want to take a long walk and visit some amazing architecture.

Santiago's Cementerio General is an amazing place to discover Chilean culture. From its diverse architecture (the tombs are a great example of Chile's income inequality) to the folklore, this place is a piece of Chile's heart and soul. It was inaugurated in 1821. In this cemetery most of Chile's presidents were buried, as well as iconic culture figures, like Víctor ...Popular withHistoryBudgetLocal

This museum was one of the most moving museums I've ever visited. The museum's design and they way it tells the story of the September 11, 1973 coup, the political prisoners, the assassinations, and the human rights violations is incredible. Bonus: it's free! I would have paid for entry though.Popular withHistoryFamiliesLocal

First of all I hope you fall in love with Santiago the way I did. It is doesn't get the hype of Buenos Aires but it is my favorite South American city. One thing I would do (and not because its my namesake) is to take the Teleférico and go up San Cristobal. It is a great way to get ...Popular withBackpackersOutdoor

If evidence were needed of the pockets of immense wealth and prosperity in late 19th Century Santiago, then this is testament to it. Completed in 1878 as the city residence of the Goyenechea-Cousiño family, it's about as Versailles as South America gets: beautiful parquet floors, ornate crystal chandeliers and hand-carved furniture throughout. From the 1940s ownership passed on to the ...Popular withFamilies

We were picked up at the hotel, dropped off at the shop to complete our equipment rental process, got our lift ticket vouchers, hopped onto their ski bus, and two hours later, we were on the lifts. What ...

When the earthquake hit Chile in 2010, this Church's belltower ended up in Avendia Providencia (the main drag in Santiago). To this day, the Church authorities have not been able to build a new belltower. There are big cracks that can be seen in the front of the fascade. I took a few pictures that shows the mighty impact of ...
