We stumbled across the changing of the guards when visiting La Moneda earlier today (do a Google search to find out scheduled times). It was great to see. Well drilled soldiers, a good band, beautiful horses and great uniforms. It sure beats the changing of...More

Our guide took us to La Moneda around 10 AM and we saw the ceremony quite well. May depend on the time of year - we were there in December. I'm sure the tourist info office would know.
