May 17, 2011

One of Santiago's classic neighbourhoods shows its new face

  • Text by Nico Castro

Located in one of Santiago's most traditional locations, at the heart of Providencia, Barrio Italia refreshed its image to combine the classic architecture and restored furniture shops with brand new design stores and some of the best new clothing brands, the finest coffee shops and humble but delicious restaurants in town.

Barrio Italia is a perfect way to spend a Saturday morning, doing the whole tour. Within the same spots you can get antique furnitures and some top notch original creations. If you have time to dive deep into Santiago's best places, this is one of the spots that you definitely need to check out.
