SANTIAGO – The Costanera Center, the tallest skyscraper in Chile, is celebrating Christmas with a huge display of lights.
The lights will go on for 2½ hours each night on the 300-meter (nearly 1,000-foot) tower until Dec. 25.
Dozens of people turned out on Saturday night at the Sculpture Park, located four blocks from the skyscraper, to watch the spectacular light display while different bands performed.
Special equipment is being used to project Christmas images on the facade of the building, which is in the heart of Santiago’s financial district in an area known as “Sanhattan,” where the Providencia, Las Condes and Vitacura neighborhoods converge.
The light show will take place each night from 9:30 p.m. to midnight until Christmas Day.
The Costanera Center’s top floors are home to Sky Costanera, the highest observation deck in South America, which opened in August.
