Castles, Palaces & Historic Buildings in Santiago

Within Latin America, Santiago isn't necessarily known for its abundance of palaces and historic buildings, but there are actually a fair number. And the fact that they city is not reknowned for them is that at times, you can have a very peaceful visit. Come to get to know the history of Santiago, founded in 1541 at Cerro Huelén known nowadays as Cerro Santa Lucía and rebuilt many times since then, with many of its older buildings dating back just a hundred years or so, due to fires and seismic activity since the city was founded.

The buildings in question make a great backdrop for pictures, and though Santiago might not have some of the oldest examples on the continent, they're still probably older and more Spanish in style than anything you have back home!
