Chile: Santiago and the vineyards

Visit Us

With a backdrop of snow-draped Andean peaks in a sunny fertile valley, Chile’s huge capital lies at the heart of the country. A multi-layered place of contrasting neighbourhoods it is worth getting to know.

There’s a tiny colonial heart which displays an often poignant history, offset by the glittering malls, skyscrapers and shady boulevards of a modern economy. Interspersed are European-style centres for shopping and eating out such as Italianate Bellavista and newly vibrant, villagey localities among which is trendy Lastarría. The surrounding Mediterranean landscape is the perfect setting for vineyards and wineries producing Chile’s well respected wines.

What our experts say

Frequently overlooked, Santiago has a lot to offer. Two of my favourite places are the seafood restaurants of the renowned Mercado Central (Central Market), where is tradition amongst young party revellers to nurse a hangover with a Caldillo de Congrio (conger-eel soup) at around 6 am amongst other things, and the historical quarter of Avenida Italia, which in the last 5 five years has experienced such a revival that you can now find all sort of antique and artisan shops – clothes, shoes, furniture, etc – as well as great cafes and restaurants.
