Street Art Santiago Chile

Street Art: Santiago, Chile

Street Art Santiago ChileI was blown away by the street art in Santiago, Chile. Barrio Bellavista (in the foothills of Cerro San Cristóbal) is home to a seemingly endless number of beautiful murals.

I stumbled onto this urban treasure on my way to see Pablo Neruda’s house, La Chascona. I had debated taking a taxi from the hotel but luckily decided against it.

Street Art Santiago ChileI had no idea that Chilean urban art was well known and only after doing some research back home did I find out that there is an Open Air Museum (Museo a Cielo Abierto) in San Miguel District, featuring 37 murals by different artists. I need to go back!
