2011在路上:南美智利-武器广场?中央广场

旅行第四日。

今晚的夜车,我们早上还了公寓的钥匙,在长途汽车站存了行李,就打算去圣地亚哥Plaza de Armas 转转。Plaza de Armas,之前看游记老是被翻译武器/兵器广场,看的我这个一头雾水。后来到智利一转,发现每个城市都有一个Plaza de Armas,照我看,还是意译成中央广场靠谱些。那为什么这些广场字面上都被称作武器广场呢?原来,受西班牙城市规划的风格影响,网格布局的城市中心总是留有一块广场空地,周围是主要的教堂、政府建筑、文化政治中心。在古时候城市受到攻击的情况下,中心广场可以作为补给防守军的重要场地,故此称之为武器广场。

前人在游记里说了,“圣地亚哥的大部分景点、博物馆,均集中在以中央广场为中心的大约12×10的街区内,利用1,2,5号地铁,便可轻松玩转这座智利最大城市,也是南美最现代的都会之一。”

广场自然是游客的中心,也是看美女帅哥的好地方。广场中心是喷水池,靠东面的地方有个骑马铜雕,还是那个西班牙殖民者Pedro de Valdivia,只不过这儿雕塑要比情人山下的那个看着精神多了。不过最精神的,还是广场上的智利骑警。这一回去智利,发现当地警察非常的亲民,制服也和我们过去的民警服装有点象,浅绿色的。虫儿好几回问路都是和人民警察打听的,虽然语言不同,但是非常耐心地比划。这会儿小乖凑过去照相,人家还主动示意站到马前面,小乖那叫一个乐啊。

广场周围一圈的建筑,不用说都是有历史的。

最牛的是西侧的Catedral Metropolitana,始建于1775年,中间修了几回,不过我猜这会儿又该修了,为什么,因为照相的时候发现教堂上面两座塔楼之间少了些东西,后来虫儿翻介绍,说是不久前的智利地震把圣母像给震掉了。教堂非常的气派,有时间进去坐坐,既洗涤了心灵,又可以叹叹冷气歇歇脚。

广场的北面西侧是中央邮局(1882),中间的是之前的皇家法院,1810年后成为智利历史博物馆,东侧为圣地亚哥市政府(1548)。广场南侧不太引人注意,起码我们没太留意,原来还有两个博物馆。有意思的是和Valdivia骑马铜雕对角的广场有一塑土著印第安人的头像,原来是平息当年立铜雕时印第安人的不满,只是广场南侧我们没去逛,这会儿翻照片才发现隐藏在背景中。

在中央广场盘桓了一阵,我们就琢磨着去Mercado Central找东西吃了。

这会儿想想,走马观花,连个博物馆都没参观,太俗了。如果之前多做做功课, 我想我还是会去不远处的前哥伦布时期智利美术馆( Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino) 逛逛,哎~~

Tips:

1. 存行李的地方在长途汽车站楼下底层靠近电梯的地方,只收现金,开放时间有限,好像是早七点晚六点的样子。我们一大两小共三个箱子一天收费$6.300。机场也有存行李的地方,但是据说比较贵。

2. 城市圣地亚哥地图

3. 写的蛮好的智利首都圣地亚哥游玩攻略手册 , 可惜我这次走之前没读到,没有太多的时间做功课。
