The Plaza de Armas de Santiago is considered the heart of the capital of Chile, marking the milestone known as Kilómetro Cero, from which the distance between the different cities of the country begins to be measured.
In its surroundings not only emblematic buildings converge, symbols of the origin of the city and witnesses of its development of more than four centuries, but also characteristic characters that fill this space with life.
Among them, visitors can find painters who daily display their art; historical photographers who use old drawer machines; or street humorists who attract the attention of passers-by.
The square was designed by the Pedro de Gamboa alarife. Around it were installed the Cabildo (Municipality of Santiago), the House of Governors (Central Mail), the Royal Audience (National Historical Museum) and the Main Church (Metropolitan Cathedral).
Since its establishment, it has been the social heart of Santiago, without ever losing its status as the center of citizen life and the undisputed heritage and tourist icon of the capital.
During this year, work was carried out to improve the site, which included changes in lighting, tree replacement, Wi-fi installation, new furniture and the recovery of the Bulnes Portal. Along with this, through the internet, you can access cameras that cover the site and thus not miss any activity at this important meeting point in Santiago.
We are located just 8 minutes from the emblematic Plaza de Armas in Santiago.
