Parque por la Paz Villa Grimaldi, Santiago

(4.2/5 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.

  • A place of reverence and emotion on the dark period of the Pinochet regime. Access is free and an audio guide is provided to hospitality in several languages. The visit is shocking especially when some visitors may be any former prisoners or relatives of victims.

  • 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.

  • A space for memory that is worth visiting

  • 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.
