    Things to do in Santiago in September

    Plaza de Armas

    Present-day Santiago had its beginnings in Plaza de Armas, an impressive square established in the mid-16th century.  The plaza today is where Chileans go to socialize, attend church, visit museums, and eat wonderful food.  The plaza is dotted with monuments, sculptures, trees, and park benches.  Around the plaza there are a number of buildings housing shops and restaurants.  Some of the other buildings include the Metropolitan Cathedral, one of the finest churches in all of the Americas.  There is also the National Museum of History, which has numerous impressive exhibits detailing the history of Chile from prehistoric times to modern day.  The plaza can get extremely busy on the weekends, so if you want to avoid the crowds you're better off visiting mid-week.

    La Moneda Presidential Palace

    Palacio de La Moneda is one of Santiago's biggest attractions.  It currently houses many government offices and is the home of the President of Chile.  Tourists can accompany a guide through the grounds; this is the only way to tour the property and arrangements must be made at least seven days in advance.  This is strongly recommended and tourists learn more than they imagined they would.  If you don't have a reservation for a tour you can still enjoy the Changing of the Guard.  This colorful celebration takes place in the mornings every other day.  It's a grand military show featuring bands, horses, and lavish military customs.
