GAM is incredible. I go here primarily forthe theater, but this is a comprehensive cultural megaplex with dance, music, classes , art exhibits. You can´t beat the theater here and even if you don´t speak SPanish you can enjoy the cafe, the art exhibits, a wine shop and bookstore. You can marvel at this cultural mecca.

Nice building and meeting point between the hustle and bustle of downtown and Bellavista nabe. Great art space for literature, theatre and dance. Witnessed the production of NUMANCIA, Cervantes play. Impressed.

Interesting local arts and culture center to visit. They have a lot of plays, music, and movie screenings going on all the time. It's interesting for people watching as well as it is usually filled with locals practicing dance routines and such. Fun visit.

This is cool looking building both outside to walk around and inside. There is space available on the floor level for 'street performance' as we saw some jugglers there. It sells tickets to local shows, although all shows were in Spanish when we checked so we did not buy tickets. There is also a well regarded wine store in the... More

The Centro Cultural has some interesting art murals on the walls and the building is interesting. It is worth passing by to check out.

Should be upper on this list. I live in Santiago and this is one of the most vibrant places downtown. A must-stop in the Barrio Lastarria walk, full of street dancers and always has really nice thatre and shows.

This building is cool! Very arty architecture and loads of young people practicing their performance out in the open. Nice wine store and cafe. We saw an exhibition of an American artist and happened to be there when he explained his pictures. There was a performance as well, but my non-open mind did not get any of this...
