Santiago Changing of the Guard La Moneda Palace Band and Guards

A 30 piece military band accompanies the changing guards

Every second day at 10:00am for around half an hour, an impressive Changing of the Guard ceremony takes place in front of the Presidential Palace (La Moneda Palace) in the centre of zesty Santiago. It is quite a spectacle – a brass band, soldiers with swords and rifles, yelled instructions, precision marching and lots of ceremonial goings-on.

Welcome to Travel Wonders
My name is Mark and I’m a keen traveller. In fact, over the last 25 years, I’ve travelled to every continent and over 80 countries. This blog is about the most memorable destinations – the places I regard as the travel wonders of the world. I’m also a keen photographer, and have taken nearly all the photos you’ll see. During my travels, I’ve met some incredible people, seen inspiring places, viewed extraordinary wildlife and scenery and had some amazing experiences, and I’m writing these stories not only to entertain but primarily to inspire others to discover their own travel wonders.
