If you like food and wine, architecture, great views and a bit of quirkiness, you’re going to love a Santiago stopover.
Key on the agenda during a few days in Santiago should be a visit to Plaza de Armas, where many of the historic buildings are situated. Aside from taking in the mix of modern and colonial architecture, you can walk along the promenade in either direction, for shopping or visiting cafes.
If you make your way east, you can reach Cerro Lucia Hill. This park was a real highlight featuring appealing old buildings and offering a natural respite from the bustling city. After a twenty-minute walk up the hill you are rewarded with a 360-degree view of Santiago. On the way up, don’t miss Neptune’s Fountain, another of Santiago’s architectural delights.
