Free Walking Tour of Santiago de Chile
We'll meet at the scheduled time at the Plaza de las Armas in Santiago de Chile, one of the liveliest areas in the Chilean capital. In front of Pedro de Valdivia's equestrian sculpture, we'll talk about the foundation of Santiago, its myths and the key role played by this Chilean man. You're sure to be surprised!
While we talk about the origins of the capital, we'll pass by its most representative buildings: the Municipality, the National History Museum, the Santiago Central Post Office and the Metropolitan Cathedral. We will enter the interior of this neoclassical temple to contemplate its careful interior decoration and to reveal the curious anecdotes that surround it. Do you know who the embalmed hearts belong to that are hidden in its crypt?
The next stop on the free tour of Santiago de Chile will be at the foot of the Santa Lucía hill, the oldest part of the capital. From here, we'll walk to the Poniente area to enjoy its neoclassical and Art-Deco architecture from the beginning of the 20th century.
To learn more about Chile's recent history, we'll walk next to the Supreme Court of Justice, the old National Congress and the Mint Palace, where the country's Prime Minister resides. We'll also talk about the causes and consequences of the 1973 Coup d'état.
After two and a half hours discovering the most interesting spots in Santiago de Chile we'll conclude the tour.
