Un finde en Santiago con Gab II

The second day we woke up a bit later because friday was an extremely long day. But after a short breakfast in the hostel we took the metro and a bus (in total one hour and a bit) to go to the Parque por la Paz Villa Grimaldi (the featured picture of this post is also one of the main memorials there). This site was used as a Center of Abduction between 1974 and 1978 during the dictatorship of Pinochet. It as very well done open-air memorial/museum and free including an audio guide in multiple languages. Overall it was very interesting and moving to visit it and learn the history of this place and the dictatorship of Pinochet. IMG_4706 After lunch we went to the Museo de Bellas Artes which had an amazing entrance hall but the rest wasn’t too interesting at the time.
