Santiago, beautiful at night

Santiago, beautiful at night

Santiago is flanked on the east by the lofty Cordillera de Los Andes with its snow-covered peaks, and on the west by the Cordillera de la Costa. It is a city of contrasts: its colonial vestiges and nineteenth-century buildings stand side by side with modern skyscrapers; its long shady avenues mingle with busy roads; and its plazas and parks are tranquil oases in the midst of the bustling metropolis. Although immersed in the hectic rhythm of this thriving city, its inhabitants maintain their hospitality toward foreigners. Leading Chile’s considerable cultural endeavors, Santiago boasts symphony orchestras, major dance companies, a host of professional theatre groups, a full slate of concerts and movie theatres, and attractive craft markets. Today Santiago has more than five million inhabitants, a third of the country’s population.
