  • Behind those columns, a voracious swallowing men, women and children. A temple to human cruelty. A symbol of the blackest page of Argentina's history. Too often ignored. Open from Wednesday to Sunday.

  • ESMA was one of the clandestine detention and torture centers most violent of all Latin America. To walk its halls and rooms allows to know the functioning of Argentine fields and the way detainees following since their abduction until its demise. Certainly, not is a place to go sightseeing. It is just that: a space to learn, remember and not allow that they forget the years of Argentine State terrorism.
