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.
