  • A quiet location in downtown Santiago to sit awhile, take photographs, or walk without so many people, is the Palace of courts of Justice, with a beautiful restored facade a couple of years ago.

  • Just a block behind plaza de armas so you can easily pay a visit to this building and make some pics. On a lovely square too!  more »
  • I passed in front of the Court of Justice. A big building, full of details, with beautiful sculptures. Worth a quick to learn.
