Santiago de Chile Excursions

  

Santiago City Tour

  

Our City Tour begins in the heart of Santiago, the Plaza de Armas where we will spend approximately 20 minutes walking and talking about the historic significance of the location and the importance of the surrounding buildings. We then continue our tour, passing the ex-National Congress to arrive at the Plaza de la Constitucion and the infamous Palacio La Moneda. Chile's presidential palace and the site of the coup d'etat of 1973. If we are there during open hours we will walk through La Moneda.

We then continue through the cobble-stoned streets of Barrio Paris-Londres and arrive at Iglesia San Francisco, the oldest church in Santiago, dating back to the early 1600s. We will wander through the interior of the church and learn about its history. Driving down the Alameda we will observe many additional historic sights in Santiago on our way to the artistic and colorful barrio of Bellavista. Here we will ride the funicular to the top of Cerro San Cristobal for a scenic vista of Santiago. Leaving the top, we will drive down through Parque Metropolitana, Santiago’s largest and most interesting park.
