Pérgola de las Flores

Pérgola de las Flores Review

Santiaguinos come to the Trellis of Flowers markets to buy wreaths and flower arrangements to bring to the city's two nearby cemeteries. La Pérgola de las Flores, a famous Chilean musical, is based on the conflict that arose in the 1930s when the mayor of Santiago wanted to shut down the market, then located near the Iglesia San Francisco on the Alameda. Find a chatty florist at one of the two open-air markets—Pégola San Francisco and Pérgola Santa María—and you may learn all about it. Beginning in 2011, these markets will be housed in a new building on the same site.
