Gran Capitan Don Pedro de Valdivia founded Santiago de Chile in 1541 and nowadays you will see his monument at Plaza de Armas, that had also been the place, where the city was founded. Another , much smaller, statue of Don Pedro de Valdivia is to be found at Cerro Santa Lucia.
The monument on Plaza de Armas is opposite of the cathedral and just a few meters from that monument you will see a small map on the floor : Santiago in 1541

Address: Plaza de Armas
Directions: The monument of Don Pedro de Valdivia is opposite of the cathedral, on Plaza de Armas in the very centre of Santiago.
