Estacion Central, Santiago
(3.2/5 based on 130+ 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. Add Estacion Central to your Santiago travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Santiago trip itinerary planner.

  • Today I am travelling in the train of memory with my sister Angelica, (69-63 years) Recalling our vacation with our parents and grandparents... will include units that we excited the train trip and the trip to San Antonio. At the moment the train made a stop in Talagante. Beautiful landscapes, fields, attention in this journey of remembrance by excellent railways staff.

  • Central station a place to those who expect change, towards different parts of Chile, mixed trading, with small but varied shops, the popular, people walked fast, others leaving the metro stations, which is compounded by the street vendors, the multicultural and multiracial which have become these streets at this time, ideal places for memories eat something fast, have a coffee in the streets.
