(160+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Add Estacion Central to your Santiago travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Santiago trip itinerary planner.

  • An example of Chilean State apparatus steal you everything they can within the legal course is, I advise you to have a unique care with its inspectors scoring and inventing parts arriving a month later, arguing, "failure to observe no parking sign" apparently in an "indeterminate" place, finally a real waste.
