  • Tour Description
  • Notes
Gain an insight into Chile’s eventful history, which will help you understand the character of the country and its people. More than 20 years have passed since the end of the authoritarian regime but the events of that time still have influence today. The centerpiece of this full-day
excursion is the Museum of Remembrance and Human Rights, which offers a wide range of mementos from the dictatorship. It was recently opened in January 2010 and has encouraged many people to think about the past. More interesting impressions await you as you visit the presidential palace “La Moneda“, the setting of Salvador Allende’s last hours, and the National Stadium, which was used as a detention center. Furthermore you will get to know the former secret prison Villa Grimaldi, which today commemorates the victims of the regime as “Peace Park“ (Parque por la paz), and the central cemetery, where Salvador Allende is buried.
Chilean museums are closed on Mondays.
