  • Old building, impressive in your building, the interior is also very beautiful, with marbles in the handrail in black and red. Blind justice statues at the entrance with the guards on the side is a great place to take a picture. The ceiling, with the arches and stained-glass Windows and asymmetric runners impress with your odd architecture. Just don't get in anyone of Bermuda shorts.

  • The Palace, relatively modern building, home to many government institutions, and perhaps also why does look severe but at the same time imposing. Beautiful the architecture of the building but also and especially that of the square, placed in a pleasant way and worthy of a good picture.

  • This building which has been recently remodeled is a classical construction imposed by their size in the heart of downtown Santiago. If you visit La Moneda and the old town, it is worth your visit.

  • I declare publicly a danger to society, that like those two innocent father and son who were in pre-trial detention for killing a scourge no one miss, I can maim and even kill who jeopardize the safety of my family. Published, notifiquese, I am a potential danger to the society. You can not share, copy and paste to publicly support these courageous two that made justice by so many and so many dead innocents at the hands of criminals.
