Description:

This wide spot in beatufiul cobblestoned Lastarría is made up of a series of houses designed by architects Ignacio Cruz and Walter Biggeman. The street itself, which extends from the Alameda on the south side to Merced, on the north, is a the spine of a small cobblestoned warren of small streets with boutiques, restaurants and museums. The plaza is at the Merced side, and becomes a small antiques fair with used books, telephones, crockery and old cameras most weekened days. There are several design-forward stores, featuring mainly pop art, but also furniture and other items of interest. Follow signs advertising garage sales and fairs, which change frequently.

There are a number of restaurants to choose from, including several that have sidewalk seating, perfect for a late afternoon lunch or pre-dinner drink.s The street also has one of Santiago's oldest artsy movie theaters, the Biograph.
