  • One of the most beautiful and accessible library of Santiago of Chile. An interesting provision of books, that invite you to visit each of its floors. There are spaces in which you can enjoy theatre and music workshops. During the year, it is very common, see exhibitions of popular theme. A recommended scenario for visit from Tuesday to Sunday.
