A bustling modern scene, a rich sense of history, and all the parks and wide-open space you could ever want - is it any wonder Ñuñoa is one of the fastest-growing neighborhoods in Santiago
? This commune is a perfect place to visit on your next trip to the sprawling city - especially if you like dining out and fresh air. Make your stay special by staying in one of our comfortable Ñuñoa vacation rentals.
South of Providencia and southwest of Las Condes
, Ñuñoa is the oldest neighborhood in eastern Santiago. While the sense of history is potent in its landmarks and attractions, the neighborhood has a lot to offer visitors who simply want a fun place to wine and dine.
Shops and supermarkets lie all over the area, providing you with everything you'll need for souvenir-hunting and whipping up dinner back at your vacation rental. Restaurants are common too, especially near the center of the district. If you're up for a little bit of both, be sure to check out the Portal Ñuñoa shopping mall!
Historic Sights in Ñuñoa
Our Ñuñoa rentals offer a wide assortment of public areas to explore nearby, including one of the best places for strolling in the whole of Chile's capital! The concrete animal sculptures of the verdant Juan XXIII Park on the east side provides a glimpse into the style of 1970's Santiago, while the Bustamante Park on the other side of the neighborhood is perfect for stretching your legs with a walk or bike ride.
Of course, no visit to Ñuñoa would be complete without checking out the Plaza. A gorgeous fountain awaits you in the center of the district, along with a nice selection of restaurants, bars, and cafés. Even more significant is the massive Estadio Nacional de Chile. The venue is a cultural landmark of Chile, presiding over its highs with concerts and soccer games, and lows as a site of Pinochet's atrocities. The stadium is a sublime, emotional experience, and absolutely deserves to be seen during your stay.
There are many, many places in Santiago well worth your time
, but be sure not to let Ñuñoa escape your notice. Check out some of our Ñuñoa vacation homes today!
