Santiago Stock Exchange

Today, walking in Downtown Santiago, I passed in front of Santiago Stock Exchange, a nice building located between Bandera and New York Streets.
Built in 1913 by the Chilean-French architect Emilio Jecquier, it's another Renaissance-inspired building in Santiago. Other works by the same architect are the Museum of Fine Arts and the Mapocho Train Station.
The Roman number over the clock (1893), stands for the Santiago Stock Exchange foundation.

j'aime beaucoup cette architecture, que l'on retrouve beaucoup à Paris dans le quartier de la bourse.


I like much this architecture, that one finds much in Paris in the district of the Paris Bourse.
