Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Museum-lovers will appreciate La Chascona and Museo Interactivo Mirador. Get a sense of the local culture at Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino and Barrio Lastarria. Step out of Santiago to go to Pirque and see Concha y Toro, which is approximately 38 minutes away. The adventure continues: take in the awesome beauty at San Cristóbal Hill, admire the landmark architecture of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), get engrossed in the history at Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos, and don't miss a visit to Plaza de Armas.
