Santiago Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia

Santiago de Chile, a city of extremes, is surrounded by the world’s longest mountain range, driest desert, largest ocean and southernmost grassy plains. The cosmopolitan South American capital has the perfect mix of both historic and ultra-modern attractions.

The lively Plaza de Armas houses the divine Metropolitan Cathedral and the National History Museum. Santa Lucía Hill is the place where the city was founded by the Spanish in the 16th-century and the Chilean Museum of pre-Colombian Art shows what life was like here before colonial rule.

La Moneda Palace is the seat of government and the place of Augusto Pinochet’s 1973 military coup. The Museum of Memory and Human Rights documents the dictator’s repressive regime.

Santiago has many city parks. Parque Bicentenario is in Vitacura, while the sculptures of Parque de las Esculturas are in Providencia. Centrally located Parque Forestal, houses the Museum of Contemporary Art. Nearby is Centro Cultural Estación Mapocho, in a former train station.

Find colorful street art, craft shops and sidewalk cafés in Bellavista. From this neighborhood, you can access Cerro San Cristóbal to look back at Santiago one more time before exploring Chile’s many natural treasures.

20 Things to do in Santiago, Chile City Guide | Top Attractions Travel Guide Travel Video Transcript:

Santa Lucia is an urban park smack dab in the middle of Santiago and it’s a popular hangout in the afternoons and weekends. The hike is a pleasant one with lots to see, including fountains, spiralling staircases, defensive forts, sprawling gardens, and cool lookout points.

Lastarria is a neighbourhood located just east of Santa Lucia hill and it was once the bohemian hub of the city.Today it is very popular with tourists as it offers an outdoors flea market, an international mix of cafes and restaurants, & live music.

For panoramic views of the city, ride the funicular to the top of San Cristobal Hill.

Plaza de Armas is the heart of Santiago’s historic centre. There are lots of benches under the cover of palm trees, and the place is buzzing with activity. The Metropolitan Cathedral is located in the historic centre of Santiago overlooking the square. The construction you see today dates back to the year 1800, since previous cathedrals were destroyed in earthquakes.

Santiago’s Central Market is the place to come for the freshest food. You'll find rows of restaurants serving up everything from grilled fish to ceviche. We really like our ceviche, so we found a place serving exactly that.

Parque Forestal is a park that forms a long stretch of greenery along the Mapocho River. It’s a nice green escape in the middle of the city.

Palacio de la Moneda is the seat of the President of the Republic of Chile. This is where you can come to watch the changing of the guard. Just underneath Palacio de La Moneda, you’ll find Centro Cultural Palacio La Moneda, which is a cultural centre featuring exhibitions, design shops, and a small selection of cafes.

Bellavista is a cultural hub with lots of theatres, cinemas, cafes, museums, and restaurants. The most famed home in the neighbourhood is La Chascona, the home of the famed Chilean poet Pablo Neruda.

And that's a wrap for the Chilean capital! We hope you enjoyed this Santiago travel guide and that it gave you a few ideas of things to do, places to visit, and Chilean dishes to try in the city.

SURPRISE SIGHTSEEING IN SANTIAGO CHILE - ep3

THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT:

FOLLOW ALP AND ME




MUSIC BY: Birocratic -

Today while standing on the balcony looking down over Plaza de Armas in Santiago de Chile city, I felt inspired to go see beautiful things. Had my sights set on the Pablo Neruda museum which turned out to be closed for the day. Wasn't an art museum anyway, just one of his former homes in the Chilean capital. Ended up doing some sightseeing in Santiago city centre which turned out to be beautiful in itself. Great day walking around Santiago Chile in the sun meeting all sorts of people finding more than a few interesting places. The small, intimate park Cerro Santa Lucia with the all round view of the city impressed me the most. Has the tomb of Benjamin Vicuna Mackena at the top. Something very South American about it which has a literary tradition in magical realism. Nice day spent sightseeing and walking around the capital of Chile. A Lot going on on the streets and there is always something to see when traveling in Santiago, go visit this Chilean city!

My name is Pedro Mota and I ride my trusty Honda Transalp motorcycle around the world. Me and Alp have been on the road now for over two years and have ridden through over thirty countries. This motorcycle adventure has taken us through Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, Russia, East Asia and Australia. Meet great people, see extraordinary places. Join me on this motorbike ride around the world and experience life on the road.

This is Santiago, Chile 🇨🇱 Safe? Beautiful? Must Visit? What to do in the city. Travel Guide

We spent a full day checking out some of major sights to try to find the best things to in Santiago de Chile.

We started out the day with a run and headed to the beautiful Parque Bicentario where we saw some beautiful views of the city and mountains. We ran around the park for awhile to see what it had to offer and came across some flamingos.

We picked up the video later in the day in the centre of town in the Plaza de Armas, which is the main square in Santiago. From here we picked up our Hop on Hop off tickets from Turistik Chile and immediate hopped on a bus!

To book your Santiago Hop on Hop off ticket visit here (we had the “plus” ticket):

The Hop on Hop off bus took us throughout a large part of the city where we got to see many of the important sites and also listen to an audio guide.

We got off at the tallest building in Latin America called the Costanera Centre (Gran Torre). Here we bought tickets to the observation deck called Sky Costanera. The observatory is this highest in Latin America and offers amazing views of the city and Andes Mountains.

After this we walked to the cable car to make our way up Cerro San Cristobal, a park on a hill in the middle of the city. The tickets to the cable car were included in our Hop on Hop off ticket and also included the funicular down the hill.

Up at the top of Cerro San Cristobal you’ll find beautiful views of the city. You’ll also find a church as well as a statue of the Virgin Mary which you can see from the ground in most of the city.

ABOUT SANTIAGO
Santiago, Chile’s capital and largest city, sits in a valley surrounded by the snow-capped Andes and the Chilean Coast Range. Plaza de Armas, the grand heart of the city’s old colonial core, is home to 2 neoclassical landmarks: the 1808 Palacio de la Real Audiencia, housing the National History Museum, and the 18th-century Metropolitan Cathedral. La Chascona is the home-turned-museum of poet Pablo Neruda.

Tour Santiago, Chile Like a Local: Famous Attractions


We booked a Santiago Like a Local tour that took in all the important spots; cathedrals, markets, lunch, foods, San Cristobal Hill and more. This is the first video with three to follow. It wasn't easy to divide nine hours of touring into less than 30 minutes, but I hope you'll find them as interesting as we found Santiago.

After the Atacama Desert, we spent more time in Santiago and discovered even more to see and do. What a fun, enjoyable and easy to get around city. Watch How to Use the Metro video to see for yourself.

“Traveler’s Bean Dip” is what I called our dinner.

1 can of black beans

1 tomato

1 clove of garlic

However much and whatever kind of cheese you’d like

A ton of cilantro because it’s delicious

I drained the beans, chopped the veggies, and mushed it all together in a pan. Topped it off with more cilantro (duh) and avocado. Nate and I dipped Tostitos right in the pan!
