These benches are distributed throughout Isidora Goyenechea, but the best are in these three blocks. They will probably be the only pieces of art you can sit on!

Américo Vespucio Norte between La Gioconda and Neveria, Las Condes,                              Santiago, Chile

Right next to a bus station, this street is filled with graffitis and colorful murals. You can get there easily and walk around. Enjoy!

 

A Happy House

As you enter Užupis, you’ll come across a sign welcoming you, and asking you to smile. And with art like this sprayed around the small independent republic, who wouldn’t?

Street Butterflies

 I’ve been living a few blocks from these for over a decade, and only saw them recently. The butterflies don’t stand out very much, so they’re hard to spot (in my defense!) Even once you do, you need to get close to actually appreciate them. They cover about half the block’s pavement.
