Paseo Ahumada, Santiago

(800+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
The pedestrianized street of Paseo Ahumada spans four city blocks and provides retail space for many shops along the lower levels. The street, however, is much more than a shopping haven--it bears an important historical significance as a main city thoroughfare. In 1647, a devastating earthquake drove many inhabitants out of Santiago, but one bold resident--after whom the street is named--was able to prevent mass exodus with the promise of a new main strip, complete with a coffee shop and public entertainment. The storefronts still bear historical architecture, and the lane often finds itself packed with visitors. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Santiago holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Paseo Ahumada and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
