Best Spanish food ever in Miami, @Jose and @Tino the best in town.
Order the Pulpo a la Gallega, Huevos rotos con jamón y trufa, the paella is also amazing and to finish you can have the piña coco Ron. Wow really good place.

Nice architecture … just a little mess around
Feb 2017 • Couples
We got to the estacion central in order to get bus tickets to Valparaiso so we got to check the train station as well. The building has a nice architecture and we saw there are some places as Starbucks for a coffee, but since we were looking for the central bus station we thought it was a little messed and not so organized to find information.

Grade: Eli = 3+, Serge = 3
Recommend: Not sure if a great place to visit if you don’t need just for tourism purpose, but if you are around, why not?

NICE OLD RAILWAY STATION AND ARCHITECTURE TO VISIT BUT TAKE CARE OF THE STARBUCKS CAFE THERE!
Nov 2017 • Friends
After work I like to visit the place an eat or drink something there. Is a good place to observe people and situations, but take care of the Starbucks café there. We were - with my business partner - victims of a very bad service and were compelled to left the café, despite we even did not get the coffees handled, because they must close! That was really strange and bad. They sell products at the closing time without any warning that they will close. So no peaceful time after that. I asked my money back and went out nerver to come again in....

All in one place

This place is absolutely full of life because of the stores, bus and train terminals. There is all kind of things at a good price, especially, in Meiggs and the Chinese stores. However, it could be very crowded and dangerous because of the thefts.

a historical train station that has more commercial activity than trains :)
Sep 2017 • Solo
main train station of Santiago (and possibly all Chile). However, as buses are main transport system of the country, there're not many train connections, therefore it's not busy as a train station. But, it's busy with lots of commercial activity as there're lots of shops around. It's also where you can see many homeless people, beggers or some pickpockets around. As of architecture, it's a nice building. Apart from that, not much.

Interesting place to visit, but take notice of some risk
Oct 2016 • Family
Estación central can be consider the heart of the railway sistem in Chile. It is the main raylway station of the city to start with. Very interesting architecture desingned by a Eiffel follower architec and settled mid of the 1800 to be the main raylway station in Chile. The place is easy to visit, but due the great commercial activity on the area, visitors need to take care of cameras or other belongings when visiting the place, to avoid thief or bugglarie.

Historical place!
Apr 2016 • Family
Its a railway station very nice.
It's really crowded, there are lots of shops, mall, cinema, places to relax, places where kids can play, place to buy food. Also nearby there are touristic places like Planetario, The Artequin Museum, The Romualdito Museum, monuments, The Evangelical Cathedral and typical and famous restaurant El Hoyo.

Villa Francia
Nov 2016 • Solo
Villa Francia is a part of the comuna Estacion Central in Santiago. Why is Villa Francia so important? because of it's history during the coup d'etat that happened in Chile the 11th of september of 1973. A lot of important people lived there, and there are still a lot of people that lived that period of our local history, you can go with somebody that knows the arounds and talk with people that can tell you their stories about what the experienced.

Feb 2016 • Couples
For french people, estacion central in Santiago is one of the numerous works of Eiffel(the one of Eiffel tower) in South America and notably Chili.
The estacion is clean, large and luminous...
The place in font of is a ptachwork of family, street vendors,...
The interior has a carousel, some old locomotives and a nice and cosy place to sit and got a drink.
