Forestal Park and walking through Lastratia District
With so many places to eat, so much culture to take in, as well as entertainment and shopping, you definitely won't be left twiddling your thumbs in this district.
Plenty to do and culture in abundance.
A vast array of culture on offer, a foodies heaven and home of the Forestal Park. There are so many reasons to visit this district. You can wander for hours without getting bored for a moment as you look at its historic buildings, the grand houses which have kept their original façades and the small single storey buildings which serve as a reminder of a different era. Declared a Scenic Area in 1997, its stature as a centre of gastronomy increases by the day. Recent additions to the area are the Nolita restaurant www.nolita.cl the new Liguria, www.liguria.cl and the Bocanáriz wine merchants who sell more than 300 different wines. Also, you should at least take a look at the Casa Lastarria boutique hotel, which has just 14 rooms, each different, constructed in an small old palace dating back to 1927. It is a paradise for the senses; for those that can afford it. Designers and artists have also shown their interest by opening their studios in the area, but culture is not just among the streets of the district, but also in the Forestal Park where large cultural and recreational activities are periodically held, usually around the Museo de Bellas Artes (Fine Art Gallery).
