24 Hours In… Santiago de Chile
Slide Nr 5
8:45am: Get Cultured – After gaining your bearings from atop Santa Lucía, plan a stop at La Moneda: the home of the Chilean president and a must-see on every tourist’s list. The imposing architecture and stalwart guards, who by law must be over a certain height, are sure to impress. Go inside to see where the famous Coup d’État happened on 11 September 1973, then check out the Centro Cultural Palacio La Moneda, a modern culture centre featuring art exhibits, funky souvenir shops, a cinema showing Chilean art-house films and more, located underground beneath the Plaza de la Ciudadanía.
