    1800 acre park and recreational area with a lot of different access routes. Walk, drive, cable car, or you can ride up a funincular. Great views from up here, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your desire to clearly see smog levels on sunny days. When you get up here you can walk around, and ...

    Barrio Bellavista

    4.5
    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. ...

    La Chascona

    4.5
    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, ...

    No visit to Santiago, Chile is complete without a stroll through one of Santiagos more historic, interesting, and quaint, neighborhoods, Barrio Paris-Londres. Founded at the turn of the 19th century, these mansions were constructed around the gardens of the Convento de San Francisco. The old mansions along with the cobble-stoned streets makes you feel that you're stepping back to the ...

    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.

    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 ...

    The Iglesia de San Francisco is the oldest building in Santiago, having survived numerous earthquakes and other natural disasters. The Church was constructed in 1618, and replaced the original Chapel built by Santiago's founder, Pedro de Valdivia. Inside the Iglesia you'll find the 4 foot statue of the Virgin Mary (thought to have miraculous powers) brought to Santiago by Valdivia.

    Paseo Ahumada and Paseo Huerfanos

    4
    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.
