It started out as the Treasury but is now the Presidential Palace (but I don't think he actually lives there!?). A nice addition to your walking tour of Santiago and near the Plaza and the Market.

You can't get near this place because of security, so just snap a picture from the distance when you're on a walking tour. It's interesting historically because this is where Allende was murdered when Pinochet took power.

Our guide took us to La Moneda around 10 AM and we saw the ceremony quite well. May depend on the time of year - we were there in December. I'm sure the tourist info office would know.
