This Tour begins at the foot of Cerro Santa Lucia, Geo-basaltic site, which glimpsed the first steps of humanity millions of years ago. This massif was later known as Cerro Huelén, a ceremonial center of the Inca culture and the Mapuche culture. We will delve into the mystery of its tunnels and climb its historic steps, built in the 19th century by Mayor B. Vicuña Mackenna, as a way of recreating French culture in these lands. We will make a couple of stops at the terraces of the God Neptune, to admire the architectural beauty of the homonymous fountain, and then the Caupolicán terrace, which consecrates the Mapuche people and their resistance against the Spanish conquest of the 16th century. In the same way, we will appreciate the monument to the Chilean indigenous and we will comment on its mysteries. We will continue walking through the old railroad crossing to reach the gates of the Hidalgo Castle, to finish the tour in the exact place of the foundation of Santiago by Don Pedro de Valdivia in 1541.
It should be noted that our guides are professionals authorized by the Ministry of Economy and Tourism of Chile, certified under high international standards and all have authorization from Sernatur (National Tourism Service), the entity that regulates this activity in Chile.
We are the only ones with this standard.
We will meet at the SANTA LUCIA Metro Exit (Line 1 - Red), south exit next to the National Library. I will wear a black t-shirt or shirt and a hat, both with the legend "Chile". (Corporate garments in the photos)
