Barrio Bellavista, Santiago

4.4
#2 of 12 in Neighborhoods in Chile
Green and purple, orange and blue--the famous facades of Barrio Bellavista look more like gingerbread houses than real homes. But it's the people and culture, not the architecture, that really make Santiago's bohemian quarter a vibrant place. Known as much for its cafe culture as its energetic nightlife, the neighborhood pulses around the clock, as the city's coolest crowd congregates and unwinds. Take a stroll through the leafy streets, admire the quirky houses, then find the perfect bar and get the party started.

  • Dirty streets, sense of insecurity, fights on the street, many beggars asking for money for drugs. It is not the shadow of the place that I met seven years ago.
