The centerpiece of Santiago, Plaza de Armas continues to represent the pulse of the capital, full of lively locals and historic buildings.

  • The central place of Santiago. Nothing to special here. A nice place to sit on a bench and watch people, or groups dancing, or streets artists. 
  • Me and my wife to the Centre of Santiago and in one of the times we visited the Plaza de Armas. Large and beautiful location, with beautiful buildings. Well worth the visit! There is also place for food and drink!

  • It's beautiful. But more crowded than I'm used to. It has an inorganic feeling that doesn't make it a good place to hang out.
  • A fantastic energy and vibe. I wish I had an fair share of my night to spend there. Live music and community atmosphere with nearby shops and all sorts of entertainment.
  • Main square of Santiago. This is a place with too much history, different kind of people and some acts like singers, music groups, human statues and others. Here you can find the Cathedral, the Chilean Historical Museum among others.
  • Nice square to sit and relax. It is bordered by the cathedral, post office and many monuments. Nice fountains and sculptures.
  • Really nice place, good to go and relax, many sculptures and good view.
