La Moneda Palace is where the President of Chile sits. The constructions of the building was started in the 18th century but it was finished in 1929. Its architectural style is neoclassical. The building's history is also interesting: during 1973's military coup d'état it was bombarded by the Army. It is also one of the places where Chileans gather when big events happen, like a World Cup win (or loss...)Recommended for:

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.Recommended for:

While visiting the Palacio de la Moneda (the Chilean President's Palace) in August of 2012 we found ourselves in the middle of a raging battle between anarchists and communists on one side, and the Chilean National Police on the other. We were overcome by the tear gas being used to put down this violent uprising.
