Cerro Santa Lucía (Santa Lucía Hill)

This tour will first take you to the worldwide well-known Santa Lucía Hill, which is located right next to the central street of Santiago. You will have the chance to walk around this magical place full of different flowers and ancient buildings. However, the best part of this tour will not be the fact that you will be able to take amazing photos of this wonderful historical hill; in fact, here is where those hidden secrets start to show up for you. Do you want to know what remains inside these walls? What are the secrets of the spooky statue of a child that welcomes foreigners? What is buried right above your feet when you walk? Why can we still hear that ancient cannon at midday being fired? Those and more secrets will be yours while our conversation, views and experiences take us to almost two thousand years ago.

Feria Artesanal de Santa Lucía (Sain Lucía's Craft Fair)

Before we continue with our magical tour, you will have the chance to stop at this world famous craft fair located right next to Santa Lucía hill. This fair will give you the chance not only to explore the magnificent pieces of art that are representative of our country, but also to buy souveniers that will make you remember the backgrounds of South America and its history. From little rocks that become jewelry to the most artistic clothes, you will find youserlf sorrounded by a kind of art you will never find anywhere else in the world.

Every piece of art in this place has a story to tell, stories that will be yours while you realize what makes this fair unique, and why a stop in this place is necessary when continueing our magical tour. Hungry?

La Iglesia de San Agustín (Saint Agustín Church)

 Take a look at the eyes of Jesus Christ in this picture. Do you want to know why the eyes of this image look as if they still could feel the sorrow of the past? Well, I have good news for you! The next stop of our tour will tak you to one of the most ancient churchs of Santiago and  Chile, the Saint Agustín Church. This chuch, which is full of historical features that you will hear and decorated with most beautiful victorian arquitechture, hides a secret that will make you wonder whether those religious stories about God and his power are true or not. You have seen to the eyes in the picture right? I now invite you to see that the crown of this image is not above Jesus's head, but is stacked sorrounding his neck as if it had been carved like that. However, this crown was normally carved above Jesus's head at the beggining, but for some inexplicable reason ended up in the position that remains nowadays.

Plaza de Armas

This is definitely one of the most attractive places to visit when talking about the history that makes Santiago of one most historical cities in South America. This place might look as if it was just a park to rest from the long distances people walk everyday; nevertheless, the amazing stories this place has to offer remain hidden even for the Chilean people themselves. Come with me and explore the magnificient stories of war, heroism, patriotism, and love. Stories that will take you more than two hundred years ago when a group of people gave Chile the independance that we enjoy untill today. However, there is more than just stories of heroism and war inside this little place located in the center of Santiago, there are dark secrets that will make you realize how crazy some of the people used to be two hundred years ago, and stories that the principal characters of the Chilean history would have done everything to keep hidden from you.

Parque Forestal (Forestal Park)

We will finish our magical experience togethere with a walk through the nostalgic Parque Forestal. This park will make you travel to the Chilean Colonial History. This park is a piece of art itself. It will give you the opportunity to forget avout the traffic lights, traffic jams, or the stress of a city full of cars and public transportation. This victorian park also counts with amazing sculptures that you will have to see and take a picture of. However, the magic starts when you listen to what has happened in this park and why it remains right in the middle of an important avenue. 

Are you ready to know what are the stories behind all the amazing sculptures in that park? Are you ready to close your eyes and travell to the times where people dressed up with victorian suites and attend royalty balls? 

Finish this tour experiencing the main details of the Chilean history and its secrets. Secrets that you will never forget and would love to share with your relatives, friends and partners. Or maybe you could keep them to yourself ....
