10AM: Next stop is La Chascona, the Santiago house of the famous nobel-prize winning Chilean poet and cultural icon, Pablo Neruda. Discover that he actually has three separate houses, and why this one resembles a boat!
10:30AM: Weave your way to La Vega Central, Santiago’s largest fruit, vegetable, and everything in between market. Then, it’s over the Mapocho River to the Mercado Central seafood market, a necessary stop when in a country with over 6,000 km of coastline.

Gabriela Mistral Cultural Center
3:30PM: We leave the parks and hit the streets, making our way to the historical GAM cultural center to start our history chapter. While riding through the hip Lastarria/Santa Lucia neighborhood, why not ring your bell and turn the heads of the skinny jean and moustache-wearing Chileans sipping coffee as you ride towards downtown?
4:30pm: The final stop is La Moneda, the Presidential Palace, where we’ll get into Chile’s political history with from Salvador Allende to the Pinochet regime to how it has shaped the Chilean society today.
