This is a great square, mostly all-pedestrian with few cars. Lots of benches to sit and watch the world go by. The main cathedral on one side - a very impressive building - and other institutions of note on the periphery. The square itself is...More

This square is huge. Here you have the feeling of old Santiago with its Cathedral, the Historic Museum building and Municipality of Santiago among others. There is also a statue of Conquistador Pedro de Valdivia.

Close by is the Catedral Metropolitana, Museo Historico, Ex Congreso Nacional, and Municipalidad de Santiago.
