The Spanish founded Santiago in 1541 on the slopes of the Andes, and it shows - in the language, the culture and in the richness of the architecture. Stately old buildings advertise a decaying grandeur that has been rescued by one of the world's fastest growing economies. The focal point of the city is Providencia, cosmopolitan and tree-lined, where the new brings out the beauty of the old. Shops, bars and art galleries contrast with museums and theatres.
