  • A very spacious park, green and leafy. Spectacular views in autumn, ideal for walking and observing the Cathedral from the viewpoint.

  • Already surrounded by green and living nature, a walk through the Alameda evokes many good sensations. Here is the monument to "Las Marías" (see corresponding section), ducks, children's swings... College bottle scenario (when the police don't prevent it). A day-long nursery is located in this privileged situation, where a server spent its first childhood stage. Very good to see and walk, it doesn't matter in which season of the year.

  • When the sun is right it's the perfect place to go read under the trees. It's windy so a jacket is perfect. There are public bathrooms there as well and a couple of cafes. People come jog here and walk their dogs and it's just steps away from a lot of cafes and restaurants, but they are the touristy restaurants - you have to try some of the more authentic places.
  • Beautiful park on the out skirts of old city in Santiago. Plenty of shade, seating. Good cafes near buy to watch the world go by.. fabulous old trees and water features.. relaxing even with the traffic passing.
