Attractions off the Alameda -- The formal moniker of Santiago's principal avenue is Avenida Libertador Bernardo O'Higgins, but everyone calls it La Alameda. O'Higgins is Chile's founding father, and his remains are buried under a monument dedicated in his honor across from the Plaza de la Ciudadanía. La Alameda is a congested and harried thoroughfare, characterized by throngs of people and screeching buses, and there are few crosswalks -- remember that you can cross the avenue via an underground Metro station.
