Photographer's Note

This beautiful building in the center the photo is the Central Post Office Building (Central Correo) of Santiago, a historic building on the northern edge of the Plaza de Armas.

It is adjacent to the Palacio de la Real Audiencia de Santiago and is located on what was the land lot originally owned by Pedro de Valdivia and where he built his house.

The site also was occupied by a building that served as Presidential Palace until 1846. Construction of the current building began in 1881 and was designed by Ricardo Brown. Its current appearance with neoclassical style and french incluence dates to 1908.

It was designated a National Monument of Chile in 1976.
