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 was by far a very average station. The building has really nothing special and have seen better aroubd the World. Average at best. 
  • Built at the end of the 19TH century, this structure houses the Chilean main train station. Large numbers of people and a picturesque market surround and give color to the place...
