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.

  • Avenue or best-known ride downtown or Santiago, which takes you to the Center. There are many shops of different fields, such as food, clothing, etc. Similar to the shred of Union of Lima. I could find money exchange and places to eat. Preferred ride.

  • It is a street of the Centre, hot walk, but you better get out of peak hours or is full. Actually, if you are know the places leading from the Center, probably through the Paseo Ahumada and don't even know it.

  • My husband and I walked in the Paseo Ahumada aiming to meet the climate of Santiago and see the day-to-day of the Chilean. It's worth taking a morning to meet you.
