  • This is a living, essential and prominent space that should not be missing in any visit to Santiago. A counterpoint of fascinating modernity that has captivated and trapped me. Inexcusable reference which I dare say justifies itself single visit to the city.

  • Without sense and without functionality. Most of the space is empty. The architecture is beautiful, more have to walk and climb slopes all the time.

  • I caught a bus that left us in the city of culture, which is more like the ghost town, had not a soul. We entered the building of the exhibitions, there were only two, one was about the circus or something like that, only had giant puppets of some characters related to the circus, i.e. a child exposure. The second of a famous artist, who, like me, I do not understand much of art won't give my opinion, I only say that all the works on show were made with carton that is placed over the pallets.
