SANTIAGO | Plaza de Armas is the main square of Santiago and was the original center of Santiago when the city’s square grid pattern was designed in 1541. It’s a large, open public square surrounded by important historic buildings including the Palacio de la Real Audiencia (1804), Municipalidad de Santiago (1785), Correo Central (1882), and the Catedral Metropolitana (1745).

A fountain celebrating libertador Simón Bolívar stands in the centre of the square, and over 100 Chilean palm trees are dotted throughout. The square is popular with locals throughout the year, as a place to meet and relax, and on weekends groups meet here to engage in a variety of activities. Expect to see chess players, dancers, street performers, food vendors and more.

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.
