About Santiago and Places to Visit
Situated on the western coast of South America, Santiago is the capital city of Chile, a country renowned for its food, wine and vibrant culture.
Santiago’s neighborhoods each have a distinct character that reflect the cultural diversity of this South American city. The Bohemian charm of Bellavista draws visitors who are interested in colorful buildings, street art and a lively social scene. City views attract visitors to Cerro San Cristobal, especially the inspiring views from the windows of La Chascona, the former home of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. The neighborhood of Alonso de Cordoba is popular for its art galleries and luxury shops. If you prefer to bike, try the scenic bike paths in Parque Bustamante. From here, you can admire Santiago’s modern architecture and stop for a refreshment at Café Literario, a popular two-story literary café.
The modern culture of Santiago is deeply rooted in its ancient past. To explore the history of the ancient people of South and Central America, visit the Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino. The museum collection includes artifacts from cultures of Mesoamerica, Intermediate, Caribbean, Amazonian, Central Andes and Southern Andes. Among the most intriguing artifacts are quipu (“knot” in Quechua, the language of the Incan people). Still not fully deciphered by anthropologists, Quipu is an intricate writing system that uses knotted strings for record-keeping and storytelling.
From Santiago, leisure travelers have access to Chile’s snow-capped mountains, emerald forests, unbridled rivers and glaciers. One of the most popular nearby attractions are vineyards situated at the foot of the Andes Mountains. Nurtured for centuries by Chilean families, these vineyards produce wines that are an integral part of Santiago’s culture.
The primary airport that serves the city is Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport (SCEL), located 15 km (9.3 miles) from downtown Santiago.
