National Library (Biblioteca Nacional) Tours

Built in 1925, Chile’s National Library is home to an extensive collection of rare books and valuable manuscripts that date back to the early 1800s.  Its luxe interior spans two floors, which boast marble staircases and ornate sculptures of some of the country’s most famed artists. The impressive French neoclassical building is also home to the nation’s National Archives. 

Travelers who visit the vast open rooms lined with historic texts and open study tables say the iconic building in the center of Santiago offers a rare opportunity to travel back in time. And the silent stacks prove a stark contrast to the electricity of the city streets that lie right outside its doors.

Practical Info

The library is located on Avenida Libertador Bernardo O’Higgins 651. It is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9:15 a.m. until 2 p.m. It is closed on Sundays. It is accessible via public transportation by taking the metro to the Santa Lucia station.
