Tour description

Take a stroll in the most bohemian area of Santiago and feel closer to Chile's colorful culture!

The Yungay neighborhood offers an energetic, vintage feeling, with lovely colonial houses, hundreds of eateries, stunning street art, parks, and iconic sites such as the picturesque 150-years-old restaurant La Peluqueria Francesa.

Stand in front of the Museum of Memory and Human Rights and hear about one of the darkest periods in the country. Discover some of the buildings affected by Pinochet’s dictatorship in the late 20th century, and see with your own eyes how the terrible 2010 earthquake devastated the city.
