One of the area’s best ski resorts is Valle Nevado, while the nearest beaches are Playa Grande Las Cruces and Playa El Quisco.

Santiago’s professional football clubs are Universidad Católica, Colo-Colo and Club Universidad de Chile. Hotels in Santiago are exciting to consider. Before we get to hotels in Santiago, let’s take a look at some more background information on the area to help you along the way.
Santiago‘s founding dates to 1541, though archaeological evidence suggests that nomadic hunter-gatherers had inhabited the area for at least 10,000 years. In 1541, Pedro de Valdivia, a Spanish conquistador, named the place Santiago del Nuevo Extremo in honor of Saint James. Originally built in a grid layout consisting of eighteen blocks, the city was burned and nearly overrun by Michimalonco-led natives. Inés de Suárez, Valdivia’s mistress, successfully defended the city’s fort alongside 55 Spanish troops. Tactically Inés terrorized the invading natives by killing and decapitating native prisoners within the fort, putting their heads on spikes, or throwing them over the fort’s walls. Even though the city’s first few years were threatened by food, supply and clothing shortages, indigenous attacks, floods and earthquakes, expansion began to take root circa 1580. The city’s first major buildings became Santiago Metropolitan Cathedral and the San Francisco Church.
Chile’s capital and largest city, Santiago today is home to over 6.4 million Chileans. The second longest country from north to south in the world behind Brazil, Chile spans just 217 miles east-west, compared to 2,670 miles north-south. Situated in the center of the Santiago Basin, which consists of fertile lands surrounded by snow-capped mountains, Santiago enjoys a semi-arid climate with Mediterranean patterns. High summer temperatures range in the 90s degrees Fahrenheit while winter highs are in the 50s. Culture in Santiago is driven by its monuments, cultural activities, entertainment, museums, sports, recreation and religion. Points of interest include National Museum of Fine Arts, National Historical Museum, National Library of Chile, National Museum of Natural History, Gran Torre Santiago, Contemporary Art Museum of Santiago, Fine Arts Museum, Municipal Theatre of Santiago, Gabriela Mistral Cultural Center, Estadio Nacional de Chile, Chilean National Zoo, Barrio Bellavista and Universidad de Chile. Popular foods include pastel de choclo, a corn casserole pie with meat stuffing, empanadas, chacarero, which is a steak sandwich and curanto, a seafood, meat and vegetable stew. Wine is a popular drink and pairs well with many of the city’s seafood delicacies. Now that we have some background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Santiago that will help provide for an outstanding experience.
