This is an important part of Chilean history that is often overlooked by visitors and locals alike, especially since it is not very close to a metro stop (although it is very accessible via micro). No cost for entrance. Definitely utilize one of the free...More

This place represents a dark period of Chilean history. It is such an irony, the place was once the most beautiful compound in the city and was used involuntarily for the ugliest mission of detaining and torturing people. The host and designers have given so...More

Spending a few hours at this Memorial Park will help you understand the awful past suffered by so many. It is out of the centre of Santiago but easy to get to. Take the blue line train to Plaza Egaña then hail a taxi. Entrance...More

Take a guided tour through the villa and learn all about the history of the torture that occurred here and realize that the Chileans have a different concept of memory than that compared to Europe, and the Holocaust. It is a peaceful park with flowers...More

In the same manner that people visit Auschwitz in Poland, I think it's important to visit Parque por la Paz Villa Grimaldi. This is not only for those who have a "disappeared" political prisoner in their families. Violation of human rights is something that happened...More

This is for Chile what Auschwitz and Dachau are for Europe. It's fairly far but pretty easy to reach, from the city center just take the red metro to Tobalaba, then change and take the blue line to Plaza Egana. In plaza Egana just take...More
