The currency Chile uses is called peso, and it would take 516 of them to be equal one dollar bill. The Chilean peso is subdivided into 100 centavos, even though no centavo denominated coins remain in circulation.
Colloquial names for some banknotes and coins include luka or luca for the 1000-peso banknote, quina for the 500-peso coin, and gamba for the 100-peso coin.
The current peso has circulated since 1975, with a previous version circulating between 1817 and 1960.
Roman Catholicism is the largest Christian group in Italy, Spain, and nearly all Latin American countries. It consists of about 24 percent of all Americans.
For the first thousand years of Christianity there was no "Roman Catholicism" as we know it today, simply because there was no Eastern Orthodoxy or Protestantism to distinguish it. There was only the "one, holy, catholic church" affirmed by the early creeds, which was the body of Christian believers all over the world, united by common traditions, beliefs, church structure and worship. So, throughout the Middle Ages, if you were a Christian, you belonged to the Catholic Church. Any Christianity other than the Catholic Church was a heresy, not a denomination.
Being such a long country stretched over a lot of landscapes, Chile has a vast range of food and drink.
One of the highlights of Chilean Cuisine is its diversity of Seafood due to its 4,270 km of coastline. Another thing not to be missed while in Chile is its high quality red wine.
Chilean food should not be confused with the spicy dishes common in Mexico. Unlike Mexican meals, the hot chili is not very common in Chile.
Although the natural layout of Chile is quite odd, its animal life does not nearly match up. In fact when compared to other South American countries Chile has quite a restricted variety in its animal life.
The armed forces constitute an independent power within the Chilean state. An entire chapter of the constitution is devoted specifically to the armed forces, giving them a status comparable to that of Congress and the courts.
Although the opposition felt that it had reduced the tutelary role of the armed forces with the constitutional reforms of 1989 by softening the language dealing with Cosena's powers, the military continued to have a constitutionally authorized right to discuss politics and policy and make its views known to the democratically elected authorities.
The five million citizens of Santiago, Chile are exposed to high levels of air pollution during a significant part of the year. Santiago ranks as one of the most polluted cities in the world and often challenges air-quality alerts and pollution emergencies.
Air pollution in Santiago results in damaging lung diseases and a large number of early deaths. Located in central Chile, the city sits in the middle of a valley and is surrounded by two mountain ranges: the Andes mountains and the Cordillera de la Costa.
Because of Santiago's unique geographic location and weather patterns, airing and dispersion of air toxins within the valley are restricted; so explaining why Santiago, with discharge levels similar to those in other cities, suffers from such high atmospheric pollution levels.
