My place is close to Santiago Market with the park and the church and close to the house of Catherwood. In the Santiago Park each Tuesday night a big band is playing and people go to dance. Santiago has several art galeries. You can eat nice in the Market or the restaurants, there are some pharmacies, a supermarket, a cinema, a few bakeries and some bars.
Santiago is a neighborhood in the Historic center and it is a 1000 meter walk (12 minutes) to the Plaza Grande with the cathedral.
