Changing of the Guard at Chilean Government Palace
The ornate, neoclassical government palace, headquarters for the President's offices, was originally constructed in the late 18th century as the country's mint. During the 1973 military coup, La Moneda was nearly destroyed. The ceremonious changing of the guard is held every odd-numbered day and always draws a large audience.
