The Beautiful Santiago City, the Capital City of Chile.

The beautiful City of Santiago lies in the central valley of the country, a little down between the central western coast and the cordillera in South America.

Pedro de Valdivia called it Santiago de la Nueva Extremadura and became the first royal governor of Chile. The main river, Mapocho runs through the beautiful Santiago City, dividing it into two sides and then connecting between these sides.

Chile is one of the beautiful countries in Latin America. It stretches about 756,950 square kilometres from the central western coast of South America to the south of it. Peru borders it at the north, Bolivia at the northeast, Argentina at the east and the South Pacific Ocean at the west.

There are more than 17,094,270 residents in Chile. About 89% of the populations live in the urban areas in the centres of the country.

Out of the population, more than 4,970,000 Chileans live in the beautiful Santiago City. However, many of the residents practice escaping from the pollution, every time and then and that makes non-stable figure of populations in the greater Santiago de Chile.

The Commune of Santiago is the administrative division and the Centro of the beautiful Santiago City as well. It is in the centre of Santiago Province and is full of commercial centres and shopping malls, some universities and government buildings.

Most of those buildings are in a triangle surrounded by Parque Forestal and Rio Mapocho at the north, the Alameda or Av del Libertador General Bernardo O'Higgins at the south and the Via Norte Sur at the west.

The Plaza de Armas is the historic centre of the beautiful Santiago City and there are many classical and colonial buildings in this center. People knew it in the past, when it was a hillside camp, as Santiago del Nuevo Extremo.

The buildings in the beautiful City of Santiago include the town hall, the post office, the museums, the cathedral and some restaurants, shops and snacks hot-dog at the eastern and southern edges of the plaza. The civic buildings continue to the west of the plaza.

The Plaza Baquedano or as known locally as, Plaza Italia is in the triangle. The Av del Libertador General Bernardo O'Higgins intersects at the triangle with Av Vicuna Mackenna and from that point on it is known as Av Providencia and it takes two other names further to the east, such as Av Apoquindo and Av Las Condes.

The metro linea 1 follows the main axis from the areas down of the coast up to the areas at the foot of the mountain.

Barrio Santa Lucia, Barrio Lastarria or Cerro Santa Lucia is one of the beautiful parks in beautiful Santiago City. It lies between Plaza Baquedano and Plaza de Armas, overlooking Alameda.

World's Best Travel Experiences: 400 Extraordinary Places

Known as travel writer as well, the actor Andrew McCarthy wrote inspiring and guiding tips to 400 beautiful destinations in the world, including the beautiful Santiago City. He said those are the best of the world destinations.

The idyllic destinations he wrote about in his book get travelers in the know to start with the ancient wonderful sites, the mountaintop villages, the beautiful coastal towns, the wonderful islands and the pristine lakes.

Carolyn McCarthy, Lonely Planet Writer said, "Chile is nature on a symphonic scale. Diverse landscapes unfurl over a 4300km stretch: parched dunes, fertile valleys, volcanoes, ancient forests, clear rivers, massive glaciers and fjords."

The beautiful Santiago City, Chile's capital and its largest and most important city experienced rapid urbanization, industrialization, and administrative expansion along with a massive internal migration that had significant social and economic consequences for the city, since 1891.

See other books about the country on different topics at the link above. Read about the Politics and Urban Growth in Santiago. It covers the urbanization development from 1891 to 1941 in the beautiful Santiago City. It is the first study to focus on this important period in Santiago's history.

Drawing on a wide range of original research, the book describes the growth of the beautiful Santiago City, both demographically and physically, and highlights the role of the local administration in this process.

Chile has often drawn attention to itself for its wholly implausible shape. In the atlas, the country's outline strikes you as aberrant and fantastical: almost 4000km in length (the equivalent of Scotland to Nigeria), and with an average width of just 180km, the very idea of it seems absurd.

When you get on the Chilean soil, however, these boundaries make perfect sense, and you quickly realize that Chile is a geographically self-contained unit.

The Andes, the great mountain range that forms its eastern border, is a formidable barrier of rock and ice that cuts the country off from Argentina and Bolivia.

The Atacama Desert, a thousand-kilometre stretch of parched wasteland separates it from Peru to the north. To the west, only a few islands dotted in the Pacific Ocean break the waves that roll onto Chile's coast from Australasia.
