  • Actually, I was passing in front and came across this monument, pure history, serious excellent there's someone there to explain all symbolism and everything. One thing I found weird and kind of dangerous, was that around the monument is that sidewalk/Street, where cars pass quietly, so you have to be smart, why the best angles to take photo are in the middle of the street.

  • The Monumento a Los Heroes is a monument in the center of Plaza Sotomayor where are several statues in honor of major military who fought for Chile in conflicts. The Guide noted that the Chile historically is a country conflicted, so their heroes were even the military.
