Estacion Central, Santiago

3.0
#166 of 506 in Things to do in Santiago
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.

  • There are many shops all over, I went out and bought a suitcase, and got it sooo cheap, it is worth coming to see if you need some clothes on your trip or perhaps a memory of Santiago, good prices

  • A variety of goods and services. At prices not very convenient, if what is sought is to economize, it is not the right place. However to traverse it is fun and gives you a perspective of price to compare for the same products but outside the Central station. Recommend as a place to visit.

  • Terrible what they have done at central station, allowing and earning money through builders, but colapsando meters, micros, clinics and streets. The Mayor clearly did not think the residents of years and less those who elected him to the.
