Travel video about destination Santiago de Chile.
Santiago De Chile, the capital of Chile, is dignified, modest and European-looking and also lively, modern and full of Latin temperament, a city that has many green areas and a history that covers five hundred years. The Plaza De Armas is the heart of the city and the historic centre of colonial Santiago that contains the city’s most important buildings. The Museo Histórico Nacional is located in the Palacio Real Audiencia. It contains around twelve thousand exhibits that feature Chile’s history from pre-Columbian times right up to the twentieth century. Strikingly dressed in black and white uniforms and brown caps, the soldiers of the guard march across the Plaza De La Constitution towards the La Moneda Palace, an elongated, strictly classical building whose white façade looks almost kitsch with the blue sky as its backdrop. Following restoration work, General Augusto Pinochet moved in and it has been the seat of government ever since. Dictatorship transformed into democracy! The Parque Forestal is situated on the northern edge of the city centre along the Rio Mapocho, a park complex with various varieties of tree. Amid all the green is the German Fountain with, at its centre, a ship with heroic figures and huge birds of prey. Today, the city is looking good and although with colonial roots, Santiago De Chile is now open-minded, modern and cosmopolitan.

    I will be visiting Chile later on in the year. I always tell people that they have  some of the best red wine in the world. Now I also found out that they respect the right of babies to be born and ban abortion….another big plus!!

    In my opinion, do not know what European look you see santiago de Chile, as very few parts have been preserved as ancient, and stumble upon modern buildings like the Torre Entel, etc. I do not mean bad, in fact, I'm Chilean, but I say it does not compare with Europe, eg London, This town does look old and conservation of remarkable culture, not tell by the amount of old buildings but by the people, because we have forgotten all that we are, in fact, not even celebrate something related to our people or ancestry, and if we celebrate the September 18, we have replaced Chicha for beer and games typical for other amusements also sell our natural resources without being aware of it, now, all natural tourist destination is destroyed by the advance of cities. No offense to my own country and with good intentions, the foreigners are right when we sometimes call us "Sell Patria".

    I ended up in Santiago almost by accident.  It wasn't on my list of targeted places to visit, but it was the starting point for a tour to Antarctica, so I figured I'd tack on a few days there as I wasn't likely to get back there.  Ended up loving the city.  I saw as much as I could, but could have used more time.  So now Santiago is high on my list of places to return to – along with other places in Chile that I've later read about but didn't see on that trip.  I especially recommend the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art – outstanding.

    Pinochet brought dictatorship not democracy! Get your facts right and read about all the disappearances and murders that occurred in the 70's! The soundtracks of this video is horrible BTW.
    Chile is wonderful!

    I think there is an error in the video!  The dictator of Chile:  Pinochet ,is  mentioned  in the same sentence with  democracy …

    Cuando volveran a la television chilena este tipo de documentales culturales que tan comun fueron al inico de nuestra television nacional universitaria a comienzo de la decada de los 60 y 70 . Por favor , devuelvan la dignidad usurpada a nuestra television nacional .
