What can I expect?

What makes a city the capital of its country? Chile has developed economically very quickly in the last few years and at the same time, it has managed to both maintain and reinvent its traditional constructions. Old heritage buildings coexist with new ones, including the tallest in Latin America. New forms of art, food, and languages mingle with the old. You will learn about the process of productions of wines that have made the country famous, visit the old port in the now picturesque, cultural city of Valparaíso, and breath the pure air of the Andes mountain range visiting the Embalse del Yeso. We will have four days to get to know Chile, its “crazy geography” (as described by a local writer) and fascinating culture, both in Santiago and nearby areas, all as wonderful and contradictory as the city itself.

Summary

Chile is a country of geographical and cultural contrasts: Santiago, its capital, is a microcosm that both reflects and intensifies those contrasts. Surrounded by mountains, known for its culture, history, and exuberant geography, this beautiful, vibrant city is a window to the variety and quick changes of the nation. We will discover part of the Andes mountain range,  taste some of the world-wide famous wines of the area, and visit one of most important cultural nearby areas: the unique, fascinating old port of Valparaiso. We will also be able to learn about the heritage sites of Santiago. By the hand of its own inhabitants, we will understand how this city was formed and is still forming right before our eyes. After visiting Santiago, neither the city nor the visitor remains the same.
