Santiago de Chile is Chile's capital and largest city. It is situated at an elevation of 520 m (1700 ft) in the country's central valley, and administratively is a part of the Santiago Metropolitan Region.

About Santiago de Chile

Set on a wide plain near the foot of the Andes, Santiago boasts one of the most dazzling backdrops of any capital city in the world. The views onto the towering cordillera after a rainstorm has cleared the air are magnificent, especially in winter when the snow-covered mountains rise behind the city like a giant white rampart against the blue sky.

The city itself is a great, sprawling metropolis of five million people - that's more than a third of the population of Chile - which is divided into thirty-two autonomous comunas , most of them squat, flat suburbs, stretching ever further out from the centre. Downtown Santiago, in contrast, is compact and manageable, and while not exactly beautiful has a pleasant, enjoyable atmosphere, especially when the sun shines and all of life pours out onto the streets.

Its architecture is a mixed bag, with a number of splendid colonial mansions, palaces and churches surviving among the otherwise dingy arcades and office blocks knocked up in the Seventies. A short bus ride east, however, in the comunas of Providencia and Las Condes , you're in a glittering world of glass-plated sky-scrapers and international hotels, reflecting the economic boom of the last decade.
