Santiago de Chile holiday highlights

Sitting on a plain under the shadow of the Andes is Chile’s capital city Santiago, the fifth largest city in South America. Along with one of the world’s most spectacular backdrops, the city mixes colonial and modern architecture. The city centre, with its numerous monuments, churches and government buildings, can be explored easily on foot, while panoramic views can be witnessed at the summit of Cerro San Cristóbal. There are also many activities that can be enjoyed outside the city, including hiking and horse riding.
