SANTIAGO | Plaza de la Constitución (Constitution Square) is a large plaza in Santiago’s civic district. It occupies an entire city block and is surrounded by numerous buildings that house government departments such as the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Justice, Banco Central de Chile and the Intendencia de Santiago. One one side is the Palacio de La Moneda, the seat of the President of the Republic of Chile.

The plaza was originally built in 1935 on the site of the then named Ministry of War. It was remodelled into its current Italian neoclassical form in 1983, and most recently renovated in 2013. Much of the plaza is grassed and it’s popular with locals as a spot to enjoy lunch or simply relax. It is the site of many important political and cultural events in Chile’s history, and dotted throughout the plaza you will find statues commemorating important Chilean political figures.

Throughout the year, events such as fairs, exhibitions and artistic presentations occur here, and twice a day visitors can see the changing of the of guard of Carabineros de Chile.

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.
