Parque Quinta Vergara information
Nowhere is Viña's nickname of 'the garden city' better justified than at the magnificently landscaped Parque Quinta Vergara; the entrance is on Errázuriz at the south end of Libertad. It once belonged to one of the city's most illustrious families, the Alvares-Vergaras, but when they fell on hard times they sold it to the city council. Their residence was the Venetian neo-Gothic-style Palacio Vergara, which houses an interesting collection of 17th- to 19th-century European and Chilean art at the Museo Municipal de Bellas Artes . Unfortunately, the museum was badly damaged in the 2010 earthquake and was closed indefinitely at the time of writing. Major concerts and the celebrated Festival Internacional de la Canción are held in the striking concrete amphitheater in the grounds.
