It is one of the most characteristic gastronomic centers of Santiago, in whose restaurants it is possible to taste typical Chilean food, mainly based on seafood. It acquired even more notoriety in 2012, when National Geographic chose it as the fifth best food market in the world.
The space is distinguished by the metallic structure that crowns it. Designed by the architect Fermín Vivaceta, the site began to be built in 1868, being inaugurated four years later.
In 2004, the environment of the Central Market was intervened to reorder it, enhance its heritage value and revitalize the urban life that develops there and since August 2017, the halls and the central square of the place have a Wi-Fi access network public.
It was declared a National Monument in 1984.
The Mercado Central de Santiago is only a 13-minute walk from our Almacruz Hotel and Convention Center.
