Traditionally the best place to start is the capital so here we are - Santiago de Chile - big but cosy city that gives you the impression of a homely town.
|La Moneda - the seat of the President - this is the place where President Salvador Allende died during the coup d'etat in 1973 which led to the long dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet|
|Iglesia de la Merced|
|Cerro Santa Lucia - the hill in the centre of the city that gives you the spectacular view of the mountains|
Santiago is the city that emerges from the mountains. Snowy picks of Andes compose the landscape together with the picks of scyscrapers.
|The monument on the central plaza - Plaza de Armas|
