Paseo Ahumada, Santiago
(3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Trained is through the paseo Ahumada, but that must be alert as in any big city center. You will find street performers, vendors, and people of all ages and of all the districts of Santiago. It is a good example of the city. Through the corner of Moneda and New York (on the diagonal), do not forget to look wonderful esl and old building corner

  • This pedestrian street in the Centre of Santiago is always busy as an artery that takes you everywhere in the Centre of Santiago and surrounded by much trade. It has no more gracefully and night is somewhat desolate so you have to walk with a bit of care.
