This magnificent four-story building that occupies the entire triangular-shaped block is located in the very center of Santiago. With a French Renaissance style and fine interior and exterior finishes, it was built between 1913 and 1917 by architect Emile Jecquier, on the land that used to belong to the Augustinian nuns. After the earthquake of 1985, it was restored.

It is the main trading center in Chile and its dominant space is the “Salón de Rueda” (Trading Floor). We can also find the “Salón de Accionistas” (Shareholder’s Room), the “Salón de Recibo” (Reception Room) and the Brokers Offices which all have direct access to the street.

The main entrance, located on La Bolsa street on the corner of Bandera street is a circular protrusion with a dome topped by a turret body.

It was declared a National Monument in 1981 for its location, successful architecture and harmony with its surroundings.

Trivia
