Santiago was founded in 1541 by the Spanish conquistador and the first governor of Chile, Pedro de Valdivia. In the colonial period from the XVI to the end of the XVIII century. Santiago was the seat of the Spanish governor general. After independence, Chile in 1818 became the capital of an independent republic and the seat of the president and parliament of the country.

It is decorated with a bronze statue of the leader of the Araucan Indians Kaupolikan. A vast park is laid out on a hill, a chapel and an ancient fortress are built. On the right bank of the Mapocha River rises Mount San Cristobal with a giant 20-meter statue of the Madonna at the top, spreading her hands over the city.
