And it doesn't end there: take in the awesome beauty at San Cristóbal Hill, walk around Cerro Santa Lucia, see the interesting displays at La Chascona, and admire the striking features of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana).

Land of Poets
Squeezed between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, geographically diverse Chile is a long, thin stretch of land encompassing some of the world's driest deserts in the north, and some of its largest glacial fields in the south. Though most Chile holidays include some form of adventure in the vast wilderness areas, the country also contains charming cities providing plenty of urban things to do and see. Many tours of Chile include at least a brief visit to the country's lush wine regions, where backyard vineyards compete with sprawling estates producing some of the world's most respected whites and reds.
