  • 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.

  • a place quite interesting, just enter a different environment feels, most of the things that are there are replicas of the originals except the swimming pool which is the only thing original remaining. This is a very good place to remember the history of our country and never forget as atrocities in this same

  • From 1974 To about 1977 this place was a secret torture "Villa" st up by the dictatorship in Chile
  • Excellent place. From the moment in which one enters, you can feel how strong that means you are on this site. Totally recommended if you want to learn more about this part of the history of Chile. The place is full of information and each sector is described in detail. It is easy to reach. Photos can be taken, and the input is released. They also have the system's audio to go listen to the information as it moves through the town. They also have bathrooms and very interesting books for sale.

  • Magnificent homage to the coup d ' état, along with Pinochet's seven/73. Is culpidor. This was a place of imprisonment and illegal detention, torture and in many cases disappearance of detainees. Long live democratic Chile.

  • For those who want to learn about the "bad" in the history of Chile part I recommend you visit the site. There is access by public transport, works until 6:00 pm, admission is free and you can explore it in maximum 40 minutes. Fact: it is very close to the Bahai Temple so I recommend to make the trip to visit both.
