  • The building is well kept, located in the old part of the city. Centre of Santiago. Interesting to participate in pedestrian free tours that runs through the main historical attractions of the city, these tours can be followed through the office of tourism of the municipality of Santiago.

  • The façade is quite good care for their time of construction (1905) but must take into account the recent renovation. It is a building which is not to visit any day of the year (except the national heritage) since it is not conditioning for tourist views, only for those working there beyond a mere photo to step I would not recommend it as a tourist destination

  • I declare publicly a danger to society, that like those two innocent father and son who were in pre-trial detention for killing a scourge no one miss, I can maim and even kill who jeopardize the safety of my family. Published, notifiquese, I am a potential danger to the society. You can not share, copy and paste to publicly support these courageous two that made justice by so many and so many dead innocents at the hands of criminals.
