Santiago is the capital and largest city of Chile. It is located in the country’s central valley. Chile’s steady economic growth has transformed Santiago into Latin American’s most modern metropolitan area, with extensive suburban development, dozens of shopping centers and impressive high-rise architecture. It has a modern transportation infrastructure, including the steadily-growing underground Santiago Metro, a public bus transport system that is being continually modernized, and a free flow toll-based ring road and inner city highway system. Part of the ring road travels underneath a section of the city’s main river, Mapocho, to connect the eastern and western ends of the city in a 25-minute drive. Santiago is the regional headquarters to many multinational corporations, and is a financial center.
