  Shift of guard at La Moneda
by Glospi

Every day, at 10 AM o'clock (sharp), the ceremony of shift of guard is performed by the Carabineros of the Guard Platoon at the northern gate of La Moneda palace, on Plaza Constitucion.

The ceremony is interesting to see, with lots of orders given in a martial voice to the troops, and the leaving guard marching down Moneda St.
Local people -both passers-by and tourists- gather to see it from the gardens of the square.
Be there early if you want to see it, as it is strictly on time and lasts about 20 minutes only.
