Santiago tourism thrives largely thanks to the city's big selection of cultural and entertainment options, including museums, theaters, restaurants, bars, and giant malls.
Venture out of the city with trips to Panul Community Park (in La Florida), Ski Portillo (in Portillo) and Valle Nevado - Ski Resort Chile (in Valle Nevado). There's much more to do: make a trip to Santa Lucia Hill, learn about winemaking at Concha y Toro, see the interesting displays at Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos, and admire the striking features of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana).
