    Chile’s most famous poet is Gabriela Mistral who was born in 1889. She published her first work when she was 25. She lived and worked in Mexico, Brazil, Spain, Portugal and the U.S. She was the first Latin American to win the Noble Prize in Literature in 1945.
    Although the cultural center was named for her, it features art and history for a wide variety of Chilean artists. They also have performances regularly of contemporary artists.
    Nearby is an area of historic monuments on Calle Jose Victorina Lastarria. This area has many historical monuments, patrimonial architecture, and simply feels vibrant with an old-world charm. Some streets still preserve the original cobblestones. There are also a nice selection of restaurants to choose from. The Barrio Lastarria maintains its urban characteristics and traditional charm within this great city.
    The GAM is definitely worth your time

    I've been there for Santiago Off for some free events. I enjoyed concerts and not so much theatre but it was an interesting discover for me.

    This was the first time I assisted Teatro Caupolicán, and It gave me a great impression.
    The stands were super clean and the staff is always willing to help you in every possible manner.
    That day, an external security company was in charge, they managed to control the entering public and they did a great job as well.
    It is very recommended to go to a random event so you can know the theatre inside and enjoy the great acoustics available in there.

    Compared to the Teatro Bellavista, Ictus or Teatro del Puente, San Ginés is a larger operation with ticket prices to match. There's a nice little bar just as you enter the auditorium, though the loos, a few bare concrete steps down from the same place, smell a little rank. The production I saw was extremely well acted with convincing, if basic, scenery. I gather the leading lady is a famous TV actress in Chile.

    I've been at Teatro Cariola - an old teather in Santiago built in 1954 - to see Steven Wilson in his HAND.CANNOT.ERASE tour in South America.
    From the pics I've seen in the internet it seemed to be a renovated theater with proper chairs, but what I got were foldable metal chairs bound to one another... exactly like I'd found at The Vic (Chicago) last year.
    Being a cold evening it was not an issue, but I imagine how it would be on a hot night!
    I hope they finish the renovation soon!
    The following questions reminded me that the bathroom has no paper and nothing to eat besides snacks...

    I have been coming here each year for 8 years or more. I love the theater in Santiago and Ictus is one of the best: small, intimate, creative and bold. I look forward each year to a return visit here. If you speak SPanish this isa must in Santiago.

    The city is very modern, it s not a histórico city
    I traveled around to the surroundings:
    Jardim botânico its not worth while;
    Val paraíso its not worth while;
    Vineyard Vinha del mar comparem to whist I have seen in Bordéus its very poor

    I was there for a presentation of Tchaikovsky's Swan lake ballet. Access was so poorly organized that the show had to start 3 minutes late. Seats are terrible and at leas we were lucky to have one, most of the attendees were sitting in chairs. Sound quality is a mess and repainting is need in every wall and ceiling. Changing bulbs should be normal for any theater, apparently not here.
    Definitely not worth the money, no matter which show.
