La Moneda Presidential Palace
La Moneda Presidential Palace is one of the most important buildings in the country, since it symbolizes the executive power in Chile, and it is the place where the current president works and exercises his leadership.
Built in 1805, it was originally designed so that the president lived with his family and worked in the same place. Today it is not the president’s personal residence, but it remains as his official work office. It is an essential part of the republican history of Chile and a National Monument.
Normally La Moneda is not open to the public (with the exception of National Heritage Day, where it is possible to visit it), so Google Street View created a possibility of touring through its rooms. These ones are not only full of art and objects of great value but offers the chance to understand part of the historical-political past of Chile.
