Interesting place in the middle of the Santiago jungle to imagine how Colonial era was in Chile. Beauty classical architecture from 200 years ago.

Casa Colorada housed the Museo de Santiago, but has been closed these last few years. I'd like to know what plans are being made for it, as it's one of the few remaining historic buildings in Santiago and deserves to be seen. The five stars are based on its historical importance.

Place is great, but he information you received is too basic. Not always is open and there are some spaces closed.

The Casa Colorada is a beautiful colonial house in the great neighborhood of old historical Santiago. Not alone in the area, it is one of the prettiest house in the area. Very close to the Plaza De Armas, it is really worth walking by and take a few photos!

You can't miss to see this beautiful palace when you visit Santiago de Chile, it is right downtown next to Plaza de Armas.

You don't come to Santiago to see colonial buildings: most fell victem to earthquakes or fires. This building and San Francisco church are almost all there is. But it is in a very interesting neighborhood near Cerro Santa Lucia and has craft shops around it, so if you are wandering about the area, give it a look.

Shows the History of Santiago through many dioramas carved in wood, made by the great Master Zerreitug. Really impressive, must go there.

can't miss it, everyone walks up and takes a million pictures. street is packed with local vendors and large crowds - watch your valuables. p.s. some other historic buildings are changing to malls and some keep their facades. recommended MeuterMedia

Casa Colorada is one of the oldest colonial buildings in STGO. It's just off Plaza Armas and and it currently houses the Museum of Santiago. The declaration of independence of Chile was signed there. I just did a Sunday morning walk by. You should do at least that.
