Estacion Central, Santiago

(3.2/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the work of Gustav Eiffel at Estacion Central, the emblematic railway station in the heart of the city. It represents one of many South American designs by the world-famous architect. Built by French firm Schneider and opened in 1885, this grandiose metallic structure typifies all the hallmarks of a great Eiffel building. Currently the city's only railway station serving southern Chile, the terminal has long served as the default meeting place for many locals and tourists, as well as Santiago's most important public transport hub.

  • This place offers a very good old infrastructure that much attention and currently operates train services, retains enough history and heritage.

  • The Estación Central is only interesting to accomplish the ride by bus to Valparaiso-Viña del Mar is disorganized, stuffy, without dining options and those with inside, for example the McDonalds, extensive queue. There is a currency exchange on the second floor, Shop No. 206, passing counterfeit notes. Very Careful. The hawkers and beggars are multiplying from 7:00 pm, attention with bags and belongings to make the journey this time around.

  • Central station has a style of French, type Gare de Lyon Station, we were to take a regional bus and is very well communicated with the underground of Santiago, others have long galleries of shopping with all kinds of articles and square meals.
