Santiago & the Coast

Santiago & the Coast holidays

The cosmopolitan capital of Chile is a buzzing metropolis set against the spectacular backdrop of the snow-capped Andes. Santiago's historical attractions, including the elaborately decorated cathedral and the small but outstanding Museum of Pre-Columbian art are complemented by hillside lanes, leafy parks, booming street cafes and increasingly sophisticated restaurants that all add to the city's vibrancy and charm. The former principal port of Valparaíso is within easy reach on the coast. The cable-drawn funicular elevators running along steep hills and colourful houses are reminders of its glorious past. Those who wish to soak up the bohemian atmosphere of the town can stay in century-old mansions converted into character hotels and visit one of the eccentric homes of Nobel prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda
