    Cerro San Cristóbal

    4.5
    27 reviews

    If it's not too smoggy, one of the best birds eye views of Santiago is from Cerro San Cristobal, a huge hill rising about 1000 feet over the city. At the top, there's an enormous statue of the Virgen Mary as well as a church and amphitheater--Pope John Paul II gave mass here in the 1980s. My favorite way to ...

    Chile is famous for its amazing seafood and the Mercado Central may be one of the best places to try some. Although its a little bit on the expensive side, it definetely deserves a visit if you consider yourself a foodie. The market was inaugurated in 1872 and its cast-iron roof is also an amazing sight for architecture fans.

    Parque Forestal

    Santiago, Chile
    4.5
    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
    4.5
    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, ...

    La Chascona

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

    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.
