The Plaza de Armas of 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 city's origin and witnesses of its development over 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 who use old drawer machines; or street comedians who attract the attention of passers-by.
The square was designed by the architect Pedro de Gamboa. The Cabildo (Municipality of Santiago), the House of the Governors (Central Post Office), the Real Audiencia (National Historical Museum) and the Main Church (Metropolitan Cathedral) were installed around it.
Since its establishment has been the social heart of Santiago, without ever losing its status as a center of civic life and undisputed icon heritage and tourism of the capital.
During this year, improvements were made to the site, which included changes in lighting, replacement of trees, installation of Wi-fi, new furniture and the recovery of Portal Bulnes. Along with this, through internet, you can access cameras that cover the site and thus not miss any activity of this important meeting point of Santiago.
We are located just 8 minutes from the emblematic Plaza de armas de Santiago.
