Overview

The tour begins with a visit to the historic city centre, where the first stop will take you to the central plaza (Plaza de Armas), built on top of an ancient Incan settlement. Here you will find kilometre zero the heart of the capital, where the construction of Santiago began during the colonial era. As you look around you will be able to see old buildings, such as the Metropolitan Cathedral, a beautiful building that combines Bavarian and neoclassical styles.

Continue as you stroll through the Civic District, named due to the large number of public buildings in the area.
