Estacion Central, Santiago

3.0
#169 of 501 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.

    It is a metal structure, of large dimensions, is located in Alameda, stands in the front a big clock. It is the railways terminal that connects Santiago with cities of the fifth and sixth region. To the side is also great shopping, varied, with very good prices, places to eat.

    The whole place is amazing. Sit down and watch how the back-and-forth of trains is great. Too beautiful and is very worthwhile.

    Beautiful train station, with French neo-classical style. Is still a very active place: with a large shopping centre, terminals of bus, subway, etc. The stores are very convenient in terms of prices.

    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.

    They have the slush with their micreros friends and say that they can't do anything. If they can do that then leave others if they can do it.
