A little history…

In its beginnings, the Bellavista neighborhood was part of the sector called "The Chimba", word of Quechua origin that refers to its location on the other side of the Mapocho River. This neighborhood functioned as a place where the advances of the Spanish conquest could not reach, and where indigenous communities, artisans, and more incipiently some industries originally settled. This is how the character and identity of a neighborhood was formed that until today welcomes artists, migrants and all those who feel attracted by its heterogeneity and openness to cultural life.
