Discovering Chile’s Capital Santiago City Tour | Half Day
At a pre-arranged time this morning, you will be met at your hotel by a Pionero Travel guide to escort you on a half day city tour of Santiago.
Your first visit will be to the handicraft village of Los Dominicos. Here you will find an impressive variety of handicrafts including works by various indigenous groups from across the country. The beautiful Colonial-style architecture of the center and its picturesque Andean backdrop make this visit one of a kind. You will also have an opportunity to watch the craftsmen as they work with pottery, copper, stone, wood, wool and glass products.
Next, drive towards Santiago´s Central Market, a colorful conglomeration of fish and seafood, fruits, vegetables, and flowers housed in an exquisite 19th century wrought-iron building.
Continue down to the principal avenues of the Civic Center and the seat of government, the neoclassical La Moneda Palace, built during the 18th century. Then visit the Plaza de Armas, Santiago’s main square, a picturesque square surrounded by the 18th century Catedral Metropolitana, the National Historical Museum, and the Central Post Office. Leaving downtown, you will head towards the Parque Forestal, leading to the Fine Arts Museum and Bellavista, the bohemian artsy center of Santiago.
