  • One of the best spots to get great views of the city
  • Always full of people and a great place to hang out ( I usually go for the empanadas)
  • ¡Una belleza santiaguera!
  • This is a truly historic place with many misteries behind it. If you ever visit the city, this is certainly a place you must visit. Ask for a tour and enjoy learning all about it!
  • Great monument to check out if you're in Santiago. Now the top floors are open to the public and offer an astonishing view of the city. Some historical information and artifacts are also scattered around. Be prepared to walk up and down a lot of steps, in case the elevator isn't working.
