    Things to do in Santiago in February

    La Moneda Presidential Palace

    Government offices including the home of the President were once in the old Plaza de Armas but have since moved to Palacio de La Moneda just to the southwest of Plaza de Armas.  This beautiful old mint is full of history, and you can still see bullet holes from the 1973 military coup.  In the morning you can watch the Changing of the Guard that takes place in front of the palace every two days, a lavish display with horses, bands, and military honors.  Guides are available to take tourists through the palace in many different languages, but these tours must be arranged at least seven days in advance.

    Los Dominicos is a popular cultural shopping center in Las Condes, east of central Santiago.  Here you can find over 200 stores where local artisans create and sell beautiful handicrafts.  The market is set in a rustic, old adobe setting that really gives it the character of old Chile.  You can find beautiful jewelry, colorful scarves, leatherwork, and wooden sculptures.  Beautiful flowers and gardens adorn the village.  Stop for a bite to eat at the traditional Chilean food stalls spread out throughout the pueblito.  Los Dominicos is open during normal business hours.

    Cerro Santa Lucia

    The former volcano now known as Cerro Santa Lucia is now one of Santiago's main attractions.  The small green hill in central Santiago rises in the center of the metropolis, providing a nice green space for exercise and socialization.  It is full of walking paths, gardens, and fountains.  One of the most attractive fountains in Cerro Santa Lucia is Terraza Neptuno, a beautiful Romanesque fountain below a statue of Neptune.  The large fountain is in front of an ornate façade of columns, stairs, and arches.  After viewing Terraza Neptuno, continue to Hidalgo Castle, a 19th century fortress that is now an events center.  Many great summer shows are held on the top of the hill.

    Maipo Valley Wineries
