Ride to hidden art-gallerys, stamps shop, fashion shows and more in Santiago!

What to do?  Activities June 26 to July 3!

Let’s stomp down the stamp line!

Sergio Heise’s passion for philately started when he was 9 years old. Back in 1956 he finally fulfilled his dream by opening a stamp shop. Way back when, this stamp collecting hobby was one of the Chilean elite… even Chilean Presidents would walk through this store. Up until today, this place welcomes visitors that look for a special piece of history!

El Penique Negro. Local #23. Galería Edwards (Intersection between Ahumada and Huérfanos). Open Monday to Friday but closed during lunch hours.

Slow down a notch!

Stop and take your time to visit the Semana de la Moda Slow,  an event that gathers Latin American designers and a taste of green conscientiousness, fair trade, environmentalists, recycling and artisanal thoughtfulness. Check out the fashion shows, art exhibitions and free workshops. This is an amazing chance to learn about the eco-friendly fashion design world in Latin America.
