Santiago de Chile – info

This intriguing, breathtaking and stimulating juxtapose of a metropolis is home to 40% of the chilean population. It’s the refreshing mix of modern & colonial architecture, the lively markets, elegant pedestrian malls, revitalising hillside parks, flashy museums and high ranking eateries that make this city shine in front of its amazing backdrop – the snowy Andes.

For the ones who get too ‘hustled & bustled’ too quickly – the beach resorts of Valparaiso and the ski village of the La Parva are only a 1 to 2 hours drive away.

Things to do in Santiago de Chile:

Palacio de la Moneda: Chile’s 17th century government building. 

Iglesia de San Francisco:  Check out the oldest colonial building in the city. 

Gran Torre Santiago: Latin America’s tallest, 64-story, skyscraper.  

Nuño area, Bellavista, Basil & Lastarria Quarters: Enjoy the live music, nightlife, food & drink.

If there is no other student of the same level, the school may change your group-course booking into a private/semi-private lesson and reduce lesson time by 50%.

Don Quijote’s – registration fee is $65.00.
