Landmark Tourist Spot
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.
