  • This building which has been recently remodeled is a classical construction imposed by their size in the heart of downtown Santiago. If you visit La Moneda and the old town, it is worth your visit.

  • 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.
