  • It is an underground Vault located in the Plaza de la Ciudadanía opposite the currency, but on the South side of the Mall. Admission is free and is lowered to walking. The place is very well kept and clean. To the South side of the Altar of the nation, as the place is known, stands the monument to the unknown soldier. The crypt, which is located on the lower level is majestic, white marble and in its Centre houses the remains of Bernardo O´Higgins. On the crypt and its sides, there are two beautiful sculptures, one of a young man who symbolizes the army and another of a woman who symbolizes the Republic. The perimeter of the vault that contains the crypt displays many objects, preserved the life of Bernardo O´Higgins. It is a place you need to visit and that the vast majority of the Santiago do not know.

  • Facing the Plaza de la Ciudadanía and metres from the Palacio de la Moneda are the remains of the libertador Bernardo O'Higgins. You can access free of charge and is recommended to visit it because of its importance.

  • The crypt was closed on the day I visited the city, I could see only the top part on the street.
