  • The place was temporarily blocked by police. Building was very beautiful, big crowds of people passing by. A nice tourist spot for photography, otherwise, nothing much to do at this spot. There are some stalls at the corner of the street if you need drinks or food.
  • Very nice spot to take a seat and people watching, safe and pleasant.
  • Home of the chilean government and a nice museum/expositions center.
  • A good place to take pictures
  • Great historical place; although centrally located, somehow remains rather calm and not crowded.
