Santiago de Chile (/saenti’a:goU/; US also /sa:n 2] Spanish pronunciation: [san’tjago]), also known by Santiago de Chile, the capital and largest city in Chile. It is also one of the most populous cities in the Americas. It is located in the middle of Chile's most populous region, the Santiago Metropolitan Region. More than 8 million people live within the city's continuous urban areas. It is located in the country's central Valley. The city is located between 500 and 650 m (1.640-2.133 ft), above the mean sea level.

Santiago, Chile's capital, was founded in 1541 by Pedro de Valdivia (Spanish conquistador). It has a central core of 19th-century Neoclassical architecture, as well as winding side-streets that are dotted with art deco, Neo-Gothic and other styles. Santiago's urban landscape is shaped by several hills and the Mapocho River. Parks like Parque Forestal or Balmaceda Park line the streets. From most places in Santiago, you can see the Andes Mountains. The lack of rain in winter causes a significant smog problem. The city's outskirts are surrounded vineyards, and Santiago is only an hour from both the Pacific Ocean and the mountains.

Santiago is Chile's cultural, political, and financial capital. It is also home to many multinational corporations' regional headquarters. Chile's executive and judiciary are located near Santiago. However, Congress meets mostly in Valparaiso. Santiago's name is after St. James, a biblical figure. The 2023 Pan American Games will be held in the city. [3]
