    18 reviews

    Cerro Santa Lucia is very historically important to the Chilean people, because it was here that Pedro Valdivia decided to found the city of Santiago. The top of Santa Lucia was naturally defensible from any enemy attack.

    Plaza de Armas

    Plaza de Armas, Santiago, Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile
    23 reviews

    It is essential to visit La Moneda and Plaza de Armas. There you will see a statue of Salvador Allende Gossens (a true hero.) This tells the true story of Chile - you will not see any statue of Pinochet (the dictator who overthrew the Allende elected government in 1973.)

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 ...

    Parque Forestal

    Santiago, Chile
    10 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

    Calle Antonia Lopez de Bello 14, Recoleta, Santiago, Chile
    10 reviews

    In my opinion it's the coolest place to stay and go out in Santiago. It's filled with both locals and tourists, cool bars and restaurans, art galleries and cafés and it's not too far from the airport. Patio Bellavista was a highlight of my last visit to Santiago. It's sort of a posh mall but with restaurants, bars and clubs. ...

    The National Museum of Fine Arts

    Ismael Valdés Vergara, Santiago, Chile
    10 reviews

    I really enjoyed exploring this place. When I visited with some friends there was a live art exhibit going on and a lot of the students actually were having visitors participate in their exhibits. Due to my inability to draw, I respectfully declined their offer for me to ruin their work.

    La Chascona

    Fernando Márquez de La Plata 0192 - Santiago, Chile, Chile
    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, ...

    Precolombian Art Museum of Chile

    Bandera 361, Santiago Chile
    6 reviews

    Without a doubt, this is one of Santiago's best museums. It has an extensive--and impressive--collection of pre-colombian artifacts spanning six different regions in the Americas. There often are temporary exhibits that are well worth your while too (the last time I visited, there was an awesome pre-colombian gold exhibit). An easy place to spend a morning or an entire day, ...

    Calles Paris and Londres, Santiago, Chile

    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.

    Cool spot to explore and walk around. I enjoyed a nice seafood sandwich here too while looking at street vendors. I heard this is the new spot for Lollapalooza Chile as well,

    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.

    Cementerio General

    Avenidas Recoleta and Valdivieso, Recoleta, Santiago, Chile
    4 reviews

    This cemetery is both historic and beautiful. I had a day to kill and made a long walk across town to the Cemeterio General. I wasn't sure what to expect but certainly didn't expect to find something that rivals even the Recoleta Cemetery in Buenos Aires. The monuments are spectacular and include some very impressive architecture. I spent an entire ...

    Paseo Ahumada and Paseo Huerfanos

    Paseo Ahumada and Paseo Huerfanos, Santiago, Chile
    5 reviews

    I first stumbled on Paseo Ahumada before I realized it was a local landmark, because someone said that's where I could get film developed. I now love coming here to grab a frozen yogurt or a coffee, or to sit down for a completo (hotdog), and watch the people bustling by. To me, this is the heart of Santiago.
