Neighborhood Forestal

Exploring Santiago Neighborhoods:

Barrio Forestal is one of those magical corners in Santiago that combines history, culture, and nature in one place. Located in the heart of the city, this neighborhood invites locals and tourists to explore its cultural and architectural richness, as well as its green spaces.

Barrio Forestal owes its name to the Parque Forestal, an extensive green space that extends along the Mapocho River. This park was designed at the beginning of the 20th century. From that time date its characteristic oriental plane trees that, in the form of a row, have been a romantic stroll through generations. Over the years, the neighborhood has maintained its historic charm, with buildings in the European architectural style.

One of the highlights is the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, and the neighborhood has several other museums and art galleries, such as the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo and the Museo de Artes Visuales. It is common to find temporary exhibitions and outdoor cultural events in the Park.

Its streets are lined with cafes, restaurants, and stores that offer a variety of dining and shopping experiences.

In addition to Parque Forestal, the neighborhood is surrounded by other green spaces, such as Cerro Santa Lucía and Cerro San Cristóbal, which offer incredible views of the city and opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking and biking.
