My mother and I were fortunate to have Helia as our guide in Santiago. History came alive through her recollections of interesting stories and facts about the architecture, people, and even the food!

Don't miss the museum! It is full of amazing Chilean history...from Conquistadores to a room full of the Allende years. Fascinating and well presented! The day we were there a band played and dancers danced the popular Queka. Very festive and fun to be there!

This video starts with the "chinchineros" playing their drums;a part of Chilean folk culture.This is taught generation to generation and there are only around 30 real chinchineros left.They play for all public on the streets and make a living from the tips recieved.
