According to the Urban Life Quality Index (ICVU), Las Condes is the best neighborhood, after Providencia, to live in Chile. The worst neighborhood is La Pintana, just 23 km from Las Condes. It is exemplary for the inequality in Chile – the most unequal country in the OECD. Nelson Quiroz, intern at Chile Today, has lived his entire life in La Pintana and made a visual report on the differences between Las Condes and La Pintana.
