Stroll along Alameda, the main avenue of the capital city. The boulevard is actually named after Chile’s founding father Bernardo O’Higgins, but it's popularly known as Alameda because of the poplar trees that line the avenue. It is home to many monuments dedicated to important people in Chile’s history, as well as various important buildings. Take a walk along this spacious street to admire the architecture of its old buildings, find a place to eat, or do some shopping. Along the way, you can view the presidential palace, the national library, or Chile’s oldest restaurant. Make Alameda a part of your Santiago vacation plans using our Santiago family vacation planner.

    I recommend visiting this area for those who want to buy clothes and accessories for little money, since in most of the places you can buy wholesale obtain interesting discounts. I suggest go weekday early because too many people circulates there being area of transshipment of buses, metro and trains, and the sidewalks are really small. Avoid the sabdos in the morning because that becomes almost impossible circulation both in shops and on the streets.
