I do not know if it was our guide Willy Estupiñan, or the location of our hotel, but the first 2 hours and a half we spent walking in the center of Santiago with a great explanation of each block we spent. Willy gave us a history class in Chile. All very interesting, since we not only knew but we knew the reason for each monument, building, statue, etc.
