Plaza de Armas and Surroundings

Description:

This day or afternoon, depending on how quilcky you'd like to rush through everything, offers most of what is colonial, notable and formally historic in Santiago, in an area that is heavily traveled by pedestrians, and only empties out late at night. For sitting and relaxing there is the plaza itself, and window-shopping possibilities abound on the pedestrian street, Ahumada, as well as the paralell Estado and perpendicular Huerfanos. This eara is choc-abloc with historical buildings, churches and museums to keep you busy for a few hours. Be sure not to miss the Segway-using info guides wheeling around the plaza.

Nighttime is a great time to take long-exposure photos as the buildings are lit up, but use your discretion about when's a good time to take out the camera.
