Plaza de Armas is a great way to start your Santiago Chile tour!
It's located downtown. Chances are, you will find lots of tourism agencies and guides trying to sell you some tours. Plaza de Armas was also our starting point for the Santiago Free Walking tour, check out our vlog here. We recommend visiting the square and running with the Free Walking tour. The tour presents you with the opportunity to visit all streets of Santiago. Our guide showed us many great locations that we later returned. More on that in other blogs from Santiago, Chile.
As in most cities, you will will lots of history in the centre hub of Plaza de Armas. You will find many statues and a great panoramic view with beautiful buildings including, the Metropolitan Cathedral, Museo Historico National, Town Hall etc.
