Centro Cultural Estacion Mapocho represents an old railway station that has been repurposed as a cultural venue. Built in 1913, the structure was one of several buildings that were erected to celebrate Chile’s first centenary. Once an important hub of rail travel in the country, the imposing building was declared a National Monument in 1976 and restored as a cultural center in 1994. Visit the station to observe its ornate facade, or explore the interior which often holds cultural events, such as art exhibitions, music performances, and the annual Santiago Book Fair.

    it's an old train station and it's not being used anymore. there are always some fairs, exhibitions, congresses and so on in this place. a nice avenue for events, and that's it about it.  more »

    It is the place where most of the cultural events of Santiago, are carried out in conjunction with other events of different types. Out of the above, it is a place quite attractive to the eye and where you can look with arrest details of construction. This close to metro station and close to the central market so she can do a picture quickly.

    Architecture! Art inside as well. We just walked here from Museo Bella Artes, and the exhibits were better here. Both worth seeing for the bldgs alone.
