The center of Chile's history, this presidential palace is a beautiful building that occupies an entire city block on downtown Santiago.

Really smelly and full of dog pooh everywhere. Even in gardens around the palace. Police fences everywhere. Highly do not recommend this place

A must. Located in downtown, famous for its bombing during the military coup in 1973. There is statues of former Chile's presidents in front of it, including Salvador Allende , the most visited one.

I mean!! It's a classic thing to do while in Santiago. The guard is so fun to watch, and it doesn't take forever! It's beautiful and easy to attend.

Took a cab and paid over $50. (US currency) to travel to and from the airport. A lot of money and no changing of the guard like the Hotel clerk told me there would be. BUT, I am really glad I went and checked it...More

Our guide took us to La Moneda around 10 AM and we saw the ceremony quite well. May depend on the time of year - we were there in December. I'm sure the tourist info office would know.
