Santiago, 60 miles from the coast and the fifth largest city in South America, is home to over six million inhabitants. The capital city of Chile, Santiago is both modern and dynamic. While the always-visible, towering snow-capped Andes dominate the city, Santiago itself dominates the political, economic, and cultural life of the country.
