Chile & Easter Island - Santiago (Chapter)
This is the Santiago chapter from Lonely Planet’s Chile & Easter Island guidebook.
Santiago has always had its measured charms – fine dining, perfectly landscaped gardens, a famous seafood market, the stunning backdrop of the Andes – but in the past few years it has undergone a cultural metamorphosis. Understated but up-and-coming, Santiago just became a destination in its own right.
- Gaze out over Santiago from the breathtaking summit of Cerro San Cristóbal
- Walk in Pablo Neruda’s footsteps at La Chascona, the one-time home of Chile’s legendary poet
- Sample paila marina (seafood stew) and watch locals bargain for fresh fish at the clamoring Mercado Central
- restaurants & accommodation
