The Historic Center is the traditional financial downtown district in Santiago de Chile. It comprises the historical center, including Cerro Santa Lucia (the place where the city was founded), historic and public buildings. Mostly commercial, there are also some traditional residential barrios here.
Downtown is mostly centered along the city's main street Avenida Libertador Bernardo O'Higgins — or as the locals call it — Alameda. North of it is the river Mapocho, Cerro Santa Lucia with great views of Santiago and the lively square Plaza de Armas. As one may expect from the central district, you will also find plenty of restaurants and hotels and good connections to and from all of the rest of the city.
