    Precolombian Art Museum of Chile

    4.5
    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, ...

    Museo Nacional de Historia Natural

    4.5
    2 reviews

    This museum was inaugurated in 1830 and it is located in the beautiful Quinta Normal Park. What makes it one of a kind? Its huge whale skeleton in display inside! The bones are over 120 years old. Another interesting piece of information about this building? It is Chile's first museum!

    Mercado Central

    21 reviews

    This is not a traditional market anymore. The middle section is nothing but a few fancy (and expensive) restaurants for tourists with promoters that won't stop bothering you. I was really disappointed.

    Barrio Paris-Londres

    4.5
    6 reviews

    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 ...

    Cerro San Cristóbal

    4.5
    27 reviews

    you can see contaminated Santiago, it's supposed to be a really intense problem; there are times when it's clear and you can see nicely the whole Santiago. We had a pic-nick there, it was a great idea to take food with us.

    Parque Forestal

    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.

    Cerro Santa Lucía

    4.5
    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.

    Plaza de Armas

    4
    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.)

    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

    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 ...

    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.
