Parque por la Paz Villa Grimaldi, Santiago

(120+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Nature / Park
Pay a visit to Parque por la Paz Villa Grimaldi, a public memorial park dedicated to the victims of the Pinochet administration. During the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, thousands of people were detained and hundreds "disappeared" in the "Villa Grimaldi" house. Destroyed to conceal evidence of the atrocities committed there, in 1997 the site was transformed into a park honoring the victims. Take a guided tour of the park or listen to the free audio guide to learn about the history of the human rights violations committed on the site. Our Santiago trip builder makes visiting Parque por la Paz Villa Grimaldi and other Santiago attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Excellent place, which at the same time is bad. Because there is no justice in the country so that there is the legacy of the memory so that they do not pass over these things.
