The Plaza de Armas de Santiago is considered the heart of the capital of Chile, marking the milestone known as Kilometer Zero, from which it begins to measure the distance between the different cities of the country.
In its environment not only converge emblematic buildings, 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 day by day display their art; historical photographers using old drawer machines; or street comedians who attract the attention of passersby.
The square was drawn by the alarming Pedro de Gamboa. Around it the Cabildo (Municipality of Santiago), the House of the Governors (Central Post Office), the Royal Audience (National Historical Museum) and the Main Church (Metropolitan Cathedral) were installed.
Since its establishment it has been the social heart of Santiago, without ever losing its status as a center of citizen life and undisputed heritage and tourism icon of the capital.
During this year, works were carried out to improve the site, which considered changes in lighting, tree replacement, Wi-fi installation, new furniture and the recovery of the Bulnes Portal. Along with it, through the internet, you can access cameras that cover the enclosure and thus not miss any activity of this important meeting point in Santiago.
We are located just 8 minutes from the emblematic Plaza de armas de Santiago.
