La Moneda
The “Palacio de la Moneda”, also known simply as La Moneda, is the name of the Chilean Presidential Palace and the seat of the government in the capital, Santiago. Originally built under Spanish colonial rule as the Royal Mint (1805), it became the presidential palace in 1846. It was severely damaged on September 11 1973, when president Salvador Allende attempted to resist the military coup led by General Augusto Pinochet, though the palace was eventually rebuilt, and has now been opened to the public.
