Santiago de Chile: Big Public Palaces






The current splendor of the biggest capitals of Latin America started in the times of the waves of the european and asian immigration. Though most of them was born during the conquest of the Spanish Empire, their exponential growth took place in the last 150 years. In the specific case of Santiago de Chile, there’s some exquisite examples: the most important is the Palacio de la Moneda, originally made for as the house of the production of coins, who then was turned into the Presidential Palace. Another gorgeous example is the Palace of Justice, made with characteristics of neoclassical architecture, a style often used for the Justice in the whole world. A few blocks away, just in front of the Plaza de Armas, is also the Museum of National History, former Palace of the Real Audiencia, where some essential events of the Independence of Chile took place. Lastly, two smaller examples: the Post Office with its Beaux Arts style (somehow similar to the gigantic building of the Post Office of Buenos Aires), and the outstanding Cuartel General de Bomberos with its unique neo-baroque style, who almost looks on its details like an hungarian palace.
