In all it's glory. A sacred spot that glitters in the dark hush. It's old, it's ostentatious, it's quiet and lovely and full of marbled carving and sculptures, paintings and altars to the saints... Worth a visit just to feel the quiet hush.

Really smelly church. Around this full of homeless or thieves. Really dangerous place. You cannot read/use your phone on the streets. Everyone try to steal you money or ask for tips

We checked out the Cathedral when visiting Plaza de Armas. It was noon and they had a afternoon service going on. The cathedral is very impressive. The singing was awesome. Lots of people going in and out. Remember to show respect. Pictures are allowed.

To enjoy the beauty of the Metropolitan Cathedral, you have to go inside the cathedral. The cathedral is located at the Plaza de Armas in Santiago's downtown. A must see while visiting Santiago de Chile.
