“It was as if between the Andes mountain range and the infinite Pacific Ocean, a narrow stretch of a land emerged, which contained all the elements that had been used to create the rest of the world, and God enlisted his favorite creatures to gather these elements into a single whole, capable of forming a country and a nation.
Flying over the peaks of the Andes, and inspired by all they contain of the sublime, thus I imagined the creation of Chile”. (Tibor Méndez, 1953)
Welcome to the IFSA-Butler Santiago website.
We’re so glad you have decided to study in Santiago, the capital city located in the Central Valley of Chile. As the economic, political, and cultural center of the country, it’s an ideal place to immerse yourself in Chilean, and therefore, Latin American life. As home to more than six million people, Santiago is a place to discover. It’s a city of diverse neighborhoods, from small pockets reflecting European influence, to traditional fruit and vegetable markets, to the towering skyscrapers of the business district embraced by the Andes Mountains.
For these reasons, we invite you to discover your own place among the hustle and bustle of the city. Please start your journey by taking a look at this site.
