Santiago Holidays Overview


Set at the foot of the spectacular Andes Mountains, Santiago is known to have one of the best settings that any city in the world enjoys. However, the Chilean capital hardly enjoys a clear day as most of its days are blighted by the high levels of pollution, noise and smog. The lucky ones who get to visit Santiago on the rare day when Santiago enjoys a clear sky (especially after the winter rain cleans its streets) would vouch for the fact that Santiago is indeed one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Those who do not have the luxury of seeing Santiago at its scintillating best might easily be put off by the noise and the dirt. However, all one needs to do is give Santiago some time. Despite all its problems, Santiago has a habit of slowly growing onto its visitors and reveals one attraction after another until the weary legs and tired eyes canít take it anymore.

Some of the best joys of Santiago can be found in its mesmerizing art collections of Forest Park, the funky nightlife of Bellavista, the cityís unique architecture and the shopping experiences found at the Mall Panora°mico. Foodies need not feel disappointed as Santiago gives them with access to the fiery Chilean fare and also offers them with a range of international cuisines and a variety of restaurants and cafes to choose from.

Santiago is also known to be a Mecca for outdoor explorers as it offers magnificent trekking opportunities along with horse riding, rafting and skiing. The nearby villages of Pomaire and Los Andes also provide for excellent day tours and offer tourists with great insights into the Chilean culture. There are a number of vineyards and exotic beaches that are also within easy reach from Santiago.

Santiago holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Plaza de Armas

What is it? The Plaza de Armas is both the heart of Santiago and the historical centre, a square hemmed in by impressive Spanish colonial public buildings, including the 18th-century Cathedral and elaborate main post office that was once the Spanish governors' residence. The square became the hub of administrative, commercial and social life when the city was founded in 1541 and today it remains the centre of life in the city. Never a dull place to be by day with its constant activity and throngs of people entertained by buskers and local artists, the evenings are just as lively when passers-by can become embroiled in chess games on temporary tables set up under the trees.

2. Chilean Museum of Pre-Colombian Art
Calle Bandera 361
www.precolombino.cl
What is it? Spanning 4,500 years and about 80 pre-Colombian civilisations of South America the Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino (Chilean Museum of Pre-Colombian Art) is a fascinating place to spend a few hours. Located in the old Royal Customs House, the exhibit displays are well lit and beautifully arranged throughout four rooms set around a central courtyard. The collection provides an informative insight into the cultures of the Incas, Mayans, Aztecs and other once proud civilisations of the continent, illustrating their artistic diversity. Hours of Operation: Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 6pm Phone:(02) 688 7348

 

 

3. Mercado Central
Corner of Calle Puente and Calle San Pablo
What is it? Santiago's colourful Mercado Central, housed in an 1872 wrought iron structure, has a fruit and vegetable market as well as a buzzing fish market where an assortment of glistening fish is packed onto the tables. Mussels, oysters and clams sit in buckets among an unidentifiable variety of crustaceans and tentacled creatures. The fishmongers demonstrate their skill at gutting and filleting amid a cacophony of frenzied buying. The best time to visit is at lunchtime when a delicious sampling of the wares can be enjoyed in the happily chaotic atmosphere of the central hall. Hours of Operation: Daily from 6am to 4pm Phone:
