Photo Essay: Santiago, Chile

An old theater in Barrio Brasil

An old theater in Barrio Brasil

I spent over a week in Santiago and enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. I had heard from other travelers that the city was terribly boring, crowded, and polluted, but found only the latter to be true. The past ten years – as the country has continued to recover from Pinochet’s regime – has brought a cultural resurgence to the capital city and there is tons to see, do, and eat.

If you go, definitely take advantage of the free walking tours from three companies: Free Tours Santiago, Tours 4 Tips, and Spicy Chile.  I took one walking tour with each and they were all informative and enjoyable.

Here is a short photo essay to illustrate my time in Santiago.
