Get to know more about the history of Chile by visiting the Museum of History & Human Rights and the General Cemetery!
On our Historical Walking Tour of Santiago, you will get to know more about the culture of Chile by visiting the Museum of History & Human Rights and the General Cemetery!
The museum opened its doors in 2010 under the governance of Chile’s first female president Bachelet and has since been a high profile and must-visit cultural institution!
The museum has a large number of documents, archives, innovative sight & sound presentations about the military coup and the human rights violations between 1973 and 1990. After the museum visit we will enjoy a tasty lunch in an old quaint French style restaurant (former French barbershop, dating back to 1891 and still functioning as such in one part of the building), where we can admire its antique furniture & decorations and travel right back in time!
After lunch we will head to the General Cemetery of Santiago, which has an estimated 2 million burials and it is therefore one of the largest cemeteries in Latin America! It was established in 1821 and a large number of influential Chileans have been buried here (former president Salvador Allende & musician Victor Jara).
You can admire the impressive mausoleums, lush gardens and a large number of sculptures. Within the cemetery, we will also visit Patio 29, which is a potter’s field. It was used for clandestine burials after the coup d’état in 1973 by Augusto Pinochet. The site is now considered as a symbol for the human rights and the disappeared of the coup d’état.
You will be picked up at 10.00 and returned by 17.00 max to your hotel (walking tour).
