SANTIAGO DE CHILERegion Metropolitana, Central Chile
Chile's capital is a dynamic, modern city where colonial mansions sit among soaring skyscrapers, folk art becomes fashion and Latin and European cultures intertwine. The city is reinventing itself, with arts, nightlife, and restaurant scenes that have never been better, making this thriving and sophisticated metropolis into the civic, cultural, and historical nucleus of the country.
Santiago offers much more than one might anticipate. Here, ancient traditions coexist with 21st century life on every street and in each neighborhood. You'll find everything from small cafés with Wifi, exclusive boutiques, great bookstores and fine handicrafts to big malls and long shopping strips that offer all of the top brands. This metropolis, which is home to over six million people, offers hundreds of options for every budget or interest and activities that can be enjoyed throughout the year.
On a clear day, fresh after winter showers, Santiago basks in one of the most spectacular settings of any city in the world. A glance through the downtown blocks reveals a mighty circle of mountains - the snowcapped Andean peaks to the east, and a smaller coastal range to the west - that frames the Chilean capital.
