Plaza de la Constitucion and its neighborhood should be visited when in Santiago. I went there to pay respect to Salvator Allende. According to our guide there are many Chileans who still think highly of him and are truly sorry for his tragic end.

This is an interesting historical building designed and built by the Spanish housing the first government. The park in the front is filled with statutes of former hero's of this nation. You can catch the changing of the guard here around 10am
