Condors near Santiago
The Andean Condor has the largest wing area of any bird on earth and to see these wonderful birds in their glorious mountain habitat is reason enough by itself to justify a trip to Chile.
The amazing size of this bird has always impressed people and the Condor appears in many pottery and textile designs of the pre-Colombian cultures in the Andes.
Even today the Andean Condor appears on the coats of arms of Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador and Chile, and is a powerful symbol of national identity for the people of the Andes.
