Picture Chile and the iconic ‘moai’ (the stone statues of heads) on Easter Island probably come to mind. Four additional UNESCO World Heritage Sites can also be found in Chile, including the Sewell Mining Town, the Seaport City of Valparaíso’s Historic Quarter, the Churches of Chiloé, and the Humberstone and Santa Laura Saltpeter Works. Diverse landscapes range from the Atacama Desert, noted as the driest place on the planet, to Chile’s northern coastline – the perfect habitat for Humboldt Penguins.

What is Chile known for?

Must-see landmarks

As the capital, Santiago is a bustling city with so many sights to enjoy. Founded in 1541, the Plaza de Armas has a multitude of beautiful architecture, with the San Francisco Church being one of them. Established in 1554, it is the oldest church in Chile and has had to be reconstructed and restored, following severe earthquake and storm damage. Existing for over 400 years, this landmark is home to a significant collection of colonial artwork and serves as a reminder of Chile’s cultural heritage.

In contrast, the modern-day La Vega Central Market is a hive of activity, with hundreds of stalls and vendors, and every grocery item imaginable, together with more unusual wares like chicken feet and pig heads. Owing to its size and sheer volume of people frequenting this shopping area, entering La Vega is sure to be a fast-paced adventure! For a more leisurely experience, the colourful, UNESCO-listed port of Valparaiso is a great place to take a wine excursion, amid the luscious green Casablanca Valley.
