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.

  • Great Park, surrounded by greenery, lets take a trip down memory lane of the Chilean dictatorship. The rose garden with the names of women tortured and killed, the designs made by the prisoners, the tower with the few remnants of a place that remains a symbol of a criminal plan in which Italians, neo-fascists fled from Italy, they played an important part. A place to bring the kids, a place to stop in silent reading, watch designs, hear who passes and who want to tell.

  • Museum Villa Grimaldi, place that brings to mind the intolerance, cruelty, not to accept different thinking, many deaths, and violations of fundamental rights every human being, lived between 1973 and during the military dictatorship. In this place ran a clandestine Center of torture, disappearances and extermination. Today, it is the first site of memory recovered in Latin America. Its goal is to be a contribution to the promotion of a culture of human rights.
