Paseo Ahumada, Santiago

3.0
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.

  • around of 900 metres from the hotel. Met KFC in Miami for the United States in the year 2015. Since that date where there is a KFC store I get invited to enter. It is a shocking and hot food, with many varieties of choice. Come and experience. Will like.
