Bello Barrio

Bello Barrio, recently declared as the »Zona tipica« from Santiago is where we are staying at the moment. These few streets try to maintain the original spirit of the former Santiago and resist all the skycrapers and modern buildings surrounding us. The entire »barrio« was designed by the famous chilean architect Luciano Kulczewski, who decided to make each of the houses slightly different and by that special. One of these details are the small metal decorations that cover the ventilation holes beneath the floors of the houses.
If you want to see more pictures of these really nice houses please visit Paulinas flickr page or the web-blog about the barrio.
