  • Around the square are the La Moneda Palace (to the North), La Moneda Cultural Center (underground under the square), the bicentennial flag (to the Center), and the monument and crypt of O'Higgins (to the South). All are worth a visit!

  • The headqaurter and core of Executive Power in Chile. A nice and tide building. !! Every two days the National Honor Guard (A selected team of the Chilean police "Carabineros") performs the Changing of the Guard every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9;30 am. And it is a mandatory stop for tourists visiting the palace and its surroundings areas to enjoy the show.
  • 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.
  • Too much police, too many fences. Close by night
  • Home of the chilean government and a nice museum/expositions center.
