Santiago Chile

This is a drawing of the National Library, one of the most renown libraries in Latin-America and one of de most beautiful buildings in Santiago. It’s located downtown Santiago (Chile), on the city’s main avenue Libertador Bernardo O’Higgins, better Known as Alameda. On one side of the Library lies Cerro Santa Lucia.


I live in the 18th floor with a privileged view to the Andes Mountains. During winter its covers of snow looking beautiful. Santiago is still a low city, with few tall buildings, but there has been an impotant growth in apartment buildings.

Such lovely light and colour in both of these. The city right next to the mountains seems strange!
