Santiago and the Wine Region , Chile

Santiago and the Wine Region, Chile travel itineraries, things to do and places to stay.

The conquistador Pedro de Valdivia founded Santiago de Chile in 1541.

Leaving Cuzco, he traveled down the continent and gazed upon the valley at the point where the Mapocho and Maipo Rivers descend from the Andes on their journey to the Pacific Ocean.

Santiago Chile

Valdivia marked the center of colonial Santiago with the Plaza de Armas and his house was located where the central Post Office now stands. Today, this clean, tree-lined square is a haven for men, young and old playing chess together, shoe shiners, artists, and lovers.
