This is the area which concentrates the greatest economic, political, administrative and cultural activity in the country. It includes the regions of Valparaíso, Libertador Gral. Bernardo O’ Higgins, Maule, Metropolitan and Bío Bío, with important cities and attractions.
Undoubtedly, Santiago, as the capital of the country, is one of the main destinations in this corridor. It represents the commercial, financing, administrative and cultural center, in addition to being a modern metropolis with countless attractions. The valleys surrounding the city lodge the most famous Chilean wineries and its proximity to the Andes also gives this city a privileged location near the best ski resorts, such as Portillo, Valle Nevado, La Parva and Farellones.
Another pearl in this corridor is Valparaíso, whose natural, architectural and cultural beauty has earned the recognition by Unesco, which has declared it World Heritage.
Viña del Mar, considered Chile’s tourist capital, is the seat for the International Song Festival. It also features excellent beaches and a valuable architectural heritage. Its first-class hotel and gastronomic proposal accompanies the booming tourist development of the city.
Very close to Viña del Mar, the bathing resort known as Concón is the destination to get to know the best Chilean gastronomy, which represents local flavors and guarantees the most demanding international and signature cuisine.
