About Santiago

Santiago Coat of ArmsSatellite view is showing Santiago, largest city and the national capital of Chile. Santiago is situated in Chile's Maipo Valley surrounded by the Andes Mountain Range, about 100 km east of the Pacific Ocean coast.

Some points of interest in the city are: La Moneda Palace (seat of the President), Plaza de Armas (main square), San Cristóbal Hill in Santiago's Metropolitan Park, Chilean National Zoo, Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino, Chilean National Museum of Fine Arts, and Santiago Museum of Contemporary Art. Estación Mapocho (cultural center) and Santa Lucía Hill.

Santiago is in Lonely Planet’s list of Best in Travel: Top 10 cities for 2012. The city is described as: "Calamity came calling to Chile, first through an 8.8-magnitude earthquake and later when 33 miners were trapped in the country’s north. With the world watching, Chile displayed its defiant optimism, and these experiences have seemed to ignite a seismic shift in the capital. Culture and sports have come to the fore and new museums have opened to acclaim. Dining is now top-notch, nightlife exhilarating and this year also marks the inauguration of the tallest building on the continent, the 70-storey Torre Gran Costanera. Day trippers can scale an Andean peak in summer, ski its powder-clad slopes in July, or cycle through the idyllic vineyards of the Casablanca, Maipo and Colchagua valleys. Visit Santiago and you’ll feel the buzz".
