Yungay neighborhood

Barrio Yungay is a traditional neighborhood in Santiago that still preserves the typical architecture of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It owes its name to the victory of the Battle of Yungay (1839) and its main landmark is the Plaza Yungay, where the “Monumento al Roto Chileno” is located, as a tribute to the chilean people.

Declared a National Monument in 2009 in the Typical Zone category, Yungay is a neighborhood with a strong cultural stamp and a mixture of elements that make it unique in Santiago.

This year it was again highlighted in the media as it was the neighborhood chosen by President Gabriel Boric to install his residence.
