Why You'll Love It

You won’t miss Plaza de Armas—it’s Santiago’s main square and near many attractions you’re likely to visit, and it’s a main metro stop. However, the plaza is worth calling out for its historic importance dating back to the sixteenth century and the founding of Chile.
Famous buildings include the main government building, the Central Post Office, and the National History Museum, as well as the cathedral.

In the park, you’ll also find artists selling their works, performers, and vendors. It’s a great place to people watch.

Know Before You Go

Take extra care with your belongings here, as pickpocketing is common. I also recommend avoiding the park at night
