SANTIAGO | Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Museum of Fine Arts) was established in 1880 and is the oldest art museum in South America. Housed in the beautiful Beaux-arts Palacio de Bellas Artes, which was built in 1910, the museum showcases the largest collection of sculptures and the second largest collection of paintings in Chile.

The museum’s collection contains over 5,000 pieces, but not all are on display. The focus of the collection is on Chilean and South American art, but there are also pieces by Italian, Spanish and Flemish painter as well as African sculptures.

For those interested in more contemporary art, the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (Museum of Contemporary Art) is also located inside Palacio de Bellas Artes, towards the back.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
