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.

  • When I went there were only two photo exhibitions in progress, but I hear it's a busy location for trade fairs and cultural presentations. The building itself is quite beautiful and in European style. Give Valley a amended after visiting the central market of Santiago.

  • Acceptable acoustic and lot of room for massive events. On the side some really nice art galleries.
  • An ok place to visit. If you have plenty of time in the city
  • 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.
  • Came here to pick up stuff for the marathon. It's a big space, but didn't really look around.
  • Feria internacional de libros was wonderful and really enjoyed the Mexican authors who spoke
