Enjoy some peace and quiet at Biblioteca de Santiago, the region's largest library and an ideal place for contemplation and reading time. Spanish speakers who would like to do some research will find plenty to appreciate here in the vast collection of fiction and nonfiction Latin American literature. Look out for the large chess set on the second floor, an unusual photo opportunity. The library sometimes hosts art exhibits and other cultural events; check their website in advance. Take a stroll in the nearby vibrant park for a change of pace. Plan trip to Santiago with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • So far is one of the best libraries, due to the variety of books that offers and allows you to review them without having to ask in an Inn. It is an incredible place to promote reading and to develop the imagination.

  • Very good library. Especially for kids.
  • It is the best library that I was in Santiago, perhaps the best of all that already visited in my life. The acquis is vastissimo and very well organized. It has an excellent Internet access, which can be used both with your computer via Wi-Fi, as well as by computers available to the public. The atmosphere is agradabilissimo, spacious and functional; the staff are very friendly and helpful. It has a cafe with great food at reasonable prices (and that's the only thing pay throughout the installation, all the rest is free). It has an optimal opening hours (incluyble on Sundays) and stays very close to the metro. An excellent choice for studies.
