Parque por la Paz Villa Grimaldi, Santiago
(3.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The peace Park is a place to remember the persecution and torture in the Pinochet era. There was originally a place of torture. Unfortunately, the successors of the Directorate of national intelligence (DINA) wanted to recap what happened there and destroyed almost the entire field. So there isn't much to see of the original facilities today. Only the reconstruction of a cell and the Tower give a dark idea as field and life was here. But really we can imagine life there from two models and their explanations? I think that not. It is impossible. We would have to suffer it to understand what a life thus means. Luck have not had to suffer it. Why I like the owners of the Park not rebuilt everything. They want to mediate a dark idea what happened here. It is enough. The reste of the Park has more monuments to remember all the people that suffered there. That pretty place! And heavy at the same time! But it has a message to us: never again!
