Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Be very careful if you go to this area… Dangerous with a lot of guns around… Eric Garvin an American lawyer was on vacation.
He was murdered in this neighborhood. Shot here for no reason, while he was taking a photograph of a building … Be aware… Perhaps go with a group…

Just walk around and check out the architecture and street mural art. You can plan to start your day at Museo de la Memoria y los Derechos Humanos and the proceed to walk Barrio Yungay and hit a spot for lunch. Then step into the Museo del Sonido a new museum on the history of sound. Get out of Centro Santiago and check out the real Santiago

It is an old barrio with houses from some decades ago, overall unimpressive. The best part is Parque Quinta Normal with a nice green area and several (simple) museums.

A quarter where the community themselves have been the main protagonists of the protection of the local heritage, which made this a consolidated cultural place within downtown Santiago.

I would like to stand out the Casa Quemada Cultural Center (2841 Catedral Street). An artsy place that was affected by a fire in 2013 and since then they've kept track of the disaster, turning into its hallmark.

I highly recommend this last place, where you'll find exhibitions from emerging artist, a local handcrafting fair, a coffee shop and a theatre stage. All of this in a place with green walls (with plants) and a friendly atmosphere; under the mixed of concepts: heritage, art and sustainability.

This neighborhood is attractively tourist because it has several types of houses from an employer's house with large grounds, cites and multi-storey collective housing and courtyards, it is a relatively interesting place as it still retains its history. It is also the focus of cultural centers, libraries, museums, cafes, restaurants, and also various cultural and artistic activities, which is why it is excellent as a panorama to go with your family or friends.

One of my favourite neighbourhoods in Santiago. The streets are lined with older homes and there is interesting graffiti art around almost every corner. Plaza Yungay (Santo Domingo/Libertad) has a large map which highlights points of interest in the area. Two blocks south of the Plaza, there are three small streets, Pasaje Adriana Cousino, Lucrecia Valdes and Hurtado Rodriguez, which showcase well-preserved European style homes. It's definitely worth setting aside a few hours to take a leisurely stroll through this eclectic sector. Directions: Take the subway to Cumming (line 5) and walk west on Catedral.

"Barrio Yungay" is an interesting neighbourhood in Santiago. For instance go to the metro station Quinta Normal. You then have the park quinta Normal or Museo de la Memoria. There is the restaurant Boulevard Lavaud. There are also some other museums and the public library. Watch the old houses that in some places are being renovated e.g. close to the restaurant Boulevard Lavaud.

There are several historical places of interest, charming passages and heritage buildings that you can visit.
We found very good infrastructure for work meetings, events and quality cultural spaces.
Really recommended for work days; very good prices.
