The military dictatorship of Chile (Spanish: dictadura militar de Chile) was an authoritarian military government that ruled Chile between 1973 and 1990. The dictatorship was established after the democratically-elected socialist government of Salvador Allende was overthrown by a CIA-backed coup d'état on 11 September 1973. During this time, the country was ruled by a military junta headed by General Augusto Pinochet. The military used the perceived breakdown of democracy and the economic crisis that took place during Allende's presidency to justify its seizure of power. The dictatorship presented its mission as a "national reconstruction. "
On our Historical Tour you will get to know more about the culture of Chile by visiting the Museum of 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 the places where the many Chileans prisoners suffered torture and death such as Villa Grimaldi, Londres 38, National stadium.
