I took the metro from the Pedro de Valdivia station (nearby Sheraton Santiago) to La Moneda station (Downtown Santiago) and the journey took less than 20 minutes. I wanted to start my walking tour from the Palacio de La Moneda which is the presidential palace. In addition to housing the president of the Republic of Chile, the officers of three cabinet ministers also live there.
