Overview

139GTSASantiago, also known as Santiago de Chile, is the capital and largest city of Chile. It is also the centre of its largest conurbation. Santiago is located in the country’s central valley, at an elevation of 520 m (1,706 ft) above mean sea level. Founded in 1541, Santiago has been the capital city of Chile since colonial times. The Andes Mountains can be seen from most points in the city. The city is now home to a growing theater and restaurant scene, extensive suburban development, dozens of shopping centres, and a rising skyline, including the tallest building in Latin America, the Gran Torre Santiago. Rio de Janeiro was founded in 1565 by the Portuguese. Later, in 1763, it became the capital of the State of Brazil until 1822, when the War of Brazilian Independence began. Rio de Janeiro is one of the most visited cities in the Southern Hemisphere and is known for its natural settings, Carnival, samba, bossa nova, and balneario beaches such as Barra da Tijuca, Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon. In addition to the beaches, some of the most famous landmarks include the giant statue of Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado mountain, named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World; Sugarloaf Mountain with its cable car; the Sambódromo a permanent grandstand-lined parade avenue which is used during Carnival; and Maracanã Stadium, one of the world’s largest football stadiums. Buenos Aires is the capital and largest city of Argentina. The city is located on the western shore of the estuary of the Río de la Plata. Buenos Aires is the most visited city in South America (ahead of Rio de Janeiro) and the second most visited city of Latin America (behind Mexico City). Also, it is known for its European-style architecture and rich cultural life. Buenos Aires defines itself as a multicultural city, being home to multiple ethnic and religious groups. Also, several languages are spoken in the city in addition to Spanish, contributing to its culture and the dialect spoken in the city and in some other parts of the country. This is because in the last 150 years the city, and the country in general, has been a major recipient of millions of immigrants from around the world, especially from Europe, Asia and Latin America, making it a melting pot where several ethnic groups live together and being considered as one of the most diverse cities in Latin America.Quito is the capital city of Ecuador, and at an elevation of 2,850 metres (9,350 ft) above sea level, it is the highest official capital city in the world. It is located in the Guayllabamba river basin, on the eastern slopes of Pichincha, an active volcano in the Andes mountains. The historic center of Quito has one of the largest, least-altered and best-preserved historic centres in the Americas. A monument and museum marking the general location of the equator is known locally as la mitad del mundo (the middle of the world), to avoid confusion, as the word Ecuador is Spanish for equator.Lima is the capital and the largest city of Peru is located in the valleys of the Chillón, Rímac and Lurín rivers, in the central coastal part of the country, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Together with the seaport of Callao, it forms a contiguous urban area known as the Lima Metropolitan Area. Lima was founded by Spanish conquistador Francisco Pizarro on January 18, 1535, as Ciudad de los Reyes. It became the capital and most important city in the Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru. Lima is home to one of the oldest higher learning institutions in the New World. The National University of San Marcos, founded on May 12 of 1551, during Spanish colonial regime, is the oldest continuously functioning university in the Americas. La Paz is the seat of the country’s government. It is located on the western side of Bolivia at an elevation of roughly 3,650 m above sea level. It is, de facto, the world’s highest administrative capital. While the official capital of Bolivia (and its seat of justice) is Sucre, La Paz has more government departments. The city sits in a bowl surrounded by the high mountains of the altiplano.
