46 reviews of Plaza de Armas


Historic center of Santiago

Considered the historical center of the Chilean capital, the Plaza de Armas dates back to 1541. Initially, it was a market square, but in 1860 it was carpeted with beautiful gardens and trees. Today there is a space for cultural activities where you can find painters and cartoonists, a central pavilion for the municipal band, and a fountain where young and old alike can escape from the hot temperatures of summer.

The city center


But a different city center than others that you can expected. This is the historic center, but nearly none that lives in the new center situated in the northeast of Santiago visit it along the year.

You'll find painters, some terraces, cafeterias...and three historic buildings: cathedral, municipality os Santiago Center District and Mail Building Company. Deserve a visit on Sundays mornings when some speakers attract the attention of the people like "Speaker's Corner" in London.
