The capital, Santiago, rests within a valley in the Andes Mountains. With many suburbs in the city these is plenty for everyone. The Plaza De Armada houses the neoclassical cathedral and National History Museum. While to the North you can relax on the beaches of Vina del Mar and explore the coastal city of Valparaiso. For those travelling with children, a visit to the impressive Parque Metropolitano, with is swimming pools, gardens and zoo, will not be a miss.
