    Cerro San Cristóbal

    27 reviews

    This place is the beating heart of Santiago's outdoors culture. It is indeed a tourist attraction, thanks to the Funicular you can take up to the top to visit the massive Virgen statute that overlooks the city, but it is far more used by locals than tourists. On a sunny sunday, you'll see thousands of cyclists pumping up the hill, ...

    Cerro Santa Lucía

    18 reviews

    This is a historic spot in Santiago. It's not as strenuous a climb as nearby Cerro San Cristobal but it provides lovely views of all of Santiago, and on a clear day, the Andes. It's kind of cool climbing those old stone paths and thinking about their role in the complex and frequently ugly colonial past of this country.

    Palacio de La Moneda

    15 reviews

    The seat of Chilean government, La Moneda is an 18th century architectural gem, housing the offices of the President and three cabinet ministers. It's huge--it takes up an entire city block--and many of the interior courtyards are open to the public. There's also a changing of the guard ceremony every other day at 10am.

    Metropolitan Cathedral of Santiago

    15 reviews

    You can't visit a Latin American country and not visit its main Cathedral. Chile's is in Santiago's Plaza de Armas and it was finished in 1800. It is a national monument and a key landmark. Its style is neoclassic and it holds the Archbishop of Santiago. A tip: visit the Cathedral on a warm Saturday night to enjoy its beautiful ...

    Parque Forestal

    11 reviews

    This is a great place to people watch. It's also a great place to fountain watch, bird watch, dancing-youth watch, jogger-watch, and ice-cream-seller watch. Though it's narrow, and you never really evade the sound of the costanera highway on one side of you and the Alameda on the other, it's still a marvelous oasis.

    Barrio Bellavista

    10 reviews

    This is one of the nicest areas of Santiago to just walk around in. The houses are colorful, the restaurants are top notch, the street art is fascinating, and the fact that it is home to a Pablo Neruda house (there are a number around Chile; see also Casa de Isla Negra and La Sebastiana) is, for me at least, ...

    Rapa Nui National Park

    7 reviews

    The Rapa Nui National Park is practically the entire island of Rapa Nui. The only part that's not under the Park system is perhaps the only town on the island, Hanga Roa and the airport. This Park is one fantastic site for education, cultural understanding, and nature appreciation.

    La Chascona

    7 reviews

    In the interest of full disclosure, I'm not a big fan of Pablo Nerudas, because of his extremist political views (Neruda was a member of the Communist party). And communism was responsible for the deaths of over a hundred million innocent people during the 20th century (according to the book, The Black Book on Communism"). But, if you're in Santiago, ...

    Parque O'Higgins

    7 reviews

    Parque O’Higgins is the site for the annual “Fiestas de la Patria” (Liberation Celebrations) in September in Santiago. The number of people who visit this park during the celebrations reaches dangerous numbers every year — the quantity of visitors always outweighing the amount of space available and the litres of alcohol consumed reaching astonishing levels. Throughout the rest of the ...

    This is one of Santiago's most charming corners. Every time i walk through here I feel like I'm going back in time. I love the curvy cobblestone streets and the houses all lined up like penguins.

There are three distinct demographics to these three resorts; international destination, where the affluent regional types go, and the affordable alternative. El Colorado is the latter of the three. The mountain is basically a large cone, and ...

    Pablo Neruda Houses

    6 reviews

    Nobel prize winning author Pablo Neruda had 3 houses in Chile, one of which is in Santiago. I visited all 3 while I was there and enjoyed them. They are unique homes with some insight into his outlook on life.
