The Alameda is the street to follow if you're walking through Santiago. It's neat to walk around and get a feel for the place, but other than that, I didn't think there was too much to see. Lots of places to eat on the street,...More

It´s the most importante street in the city, has the subway on one side and passes right throw the center of the city. This street can even let you walk and watch the antique arquitecture of the city and La Moneda.
