Santiago - Chile
Plaza Perú is a small park (square) found in the heart of the financial district of Las Condes in Santiago, Chile. It gets its name from the commemoration of 100 years of the Club Peruano (Peruvian Club) in Chile in 2004.
It is on Isidora Goyenechea Avenue which runs parallel with Apoquindo (though a couple of blocks to the north). The plaza is only a couple of blocks from the gastronomical zone of El Bosque Norte so you may want to waddle here after a good meal to let your dinner settle.
Hidden underneath Plaza Peru you will find a large carpark (you wouldn't really know from above) where people leave their cars to go to all the nearby restaurants.
What makes this Plaza interesting is that on Sundays from 10am to 7pm you will find an Antiques Fair (Feria de Antigüedades) which are stalls lined up around the edge of the plaza offering their wares (free entrance). They don't run the fair in February since it is a holiday month in Chile.
Sorry, this video doesn't contain the fair since we took it in February.
How to get there
You can take the metro (subway) to El Golf (on Line 1) and once you get out head north a couple of streets until you get to either Isidora Goyenechea or Don Carlos and turn left. The park is wedged between these two streets with Carmencita running down one of the sides.
If you come from the restaurant lined El Bosque Norte, head towards the mountains along Don Carlos or Isidora Goyenechea where it is only two blocks away.
The W Hotel has recently been built in front of Plaza Peru.
