  • At the Mapocho station there are different events, they are generally very good and interesting, you should see the calendar of events... It can be reached by Metro. For tourists, I recommend walking alert, is steps away from the central market and vega central, but it is better to go with someone who knows

  • Space where typically make concerts, art exhibitions and all kinds of events, enabling to disseminate culture in Chile. You have to learn whenever there is an event to attend.

  • The old train station, opened in 1913 and ending point of trains coming from Valparaiso, was remodeled in 1994 to become a cultural center. Your silhouette metallic ceiling, body of masonry and two story arcs is part of the attraction. Inside, two restaurants, a showroom with 17 meters tall and a concert hall mounted in the former engine room receive art shows, fairs and shows. Check the schedule on the site.
