  • Donated to the town by the British in 1910 to mark the centenary of Chile's independence. The Arc was covered in marble from Italy, guarded by a British Victorian Lion and four Britons who participated in the Chilean Independence War. Visited by QE2 and Prince Charles. Now sit on Av.Brasil. All fenced and planted with roses.

  • Cute but neglected environment

  • It has improved its ornamental since I visited the King of England to commemorate the 200 years that the British monarchy built the monument. Nice place to spend an afternoon.
