  • This is one of the most historical that I have visited, this place brings to mind with feelings all the evil and suffering that took place in the premises, the truth is that I was on a tour where I met this place and I came with mixed feelings think that many missing persons detained innocent people passed through here, only the fact of thinking different. This place is now a memorial to remind us of the more facts that is lived there, historical place that all Chileans should take importance and awareness of the before and the after. And above all to integrate ourselves more in our history of Chile.
