Founded on February 14, 1541 by Pedro de Valdivia at the base of Cerro Santa Lucia along the bank of the muddy Mapocho river, Santiago was nearly destroyed by Mapuche Indians six months later. It was rebuilt over the years, surviving floods, earthquakes, wars and more natural calamities and is now one of the largest cities of South America. Santiago is Chile’s cultural, commercial, industrial and political centre. Growth over the last decades has produced high rises, a large population (6 million), traffic and all too often, smog that obscures the snow-capped Andes. Santiago is a cosmopolitan city, with ample restaurants, bars, hotels, shopping from tiny boutique and craft fair to giant shopping mall. There are cultural attractions such as art galleries, museums, theatres, opera and ballet, lively nightlife, plus parks, tree-lined streets and distinct neighbourhoods. You'll see brand new high rises and large supermarkets next to old, shabby buildings. You'll have to fend off vendors and paddlers on the busses, but ride in peace and comfort on the subway system.
