#200 of 506 in Things to do in Santiago
Stroll along Paseo Huerfanos and observe how the city moves as you pass an abundance of stores, kiosks, banks, cinemas, hotels, and cafes. An orphanage that was built here in 1758 inspired the street's name and tall buildings flank the street on both sides. If you want to avoid the traffic, find the pedestrian only zone in the segment between Mac Iver and Teatinos streets.

    More a promenade from the Centre of Santiago that crosses another famous Promenade (Paseo Ahumada). Has many shops, street trading, bakeries, bars, very pedestrian movement. Starts at the Cerro Santa Lúcias, passing through Plaza Weapons and goes to the Park Quinta Normal where the National Museum of Natural history. It is also close to other important streets of the Center as Agustinas (parallel Street famous for currency exchange).

    If you ask me one of my favorite places in Santiago, for sure I would speak about the Paseo Huerfanos. Is a very nice place to take a ride, take a look at the shops, take a coffee, go to a restaurant or simply observe the movement.

    Different experience but equally picturesque is this another ride from the Centre of Santiago, transverse to the Paseo Ahumada. Banks and fast food place is less intense and busy that the Ahumada. You can make good shopping and walk towards the East until you reach the Cerro Santa Lucía. Between San Antonio and Mac Iver, you find a very good library.
