We begin our tour walking to the San Cristobal hill, trek to the top and enjoy one of the best views of Santiago. Upon the incline there are several options to cool off, eat a snack and rest for a while ( (if you don't want to walk, you can get on the funicular, if yes, the tour should start at 10 am). Then, we will descend and walk from Barrio Bellavista, crossing the Commercial District Patronato to the market area.

Bring money in case you fancy some of the food suggestions on the tour.
The memory of political violence
First, we will get together at the exit of Metro Cumming. We will introduce ourselves to each other and share how much everyone knows about the topic. Not knowing anything about political repression is not an impediment; on the contrary, it is the sole purpose of this "experience". A parish that is three blocks away is our first stop. From here the political police abducted the Number 2 in the structure of MIR (Revolutionary Left Movement). The way this case was handled by the MIR, and its propaganda apparatus in exile will be discussed while we walk the short eight blocks to the memorial of the last leader of MIR assassinated during the dictatorship. At this site I will retell the transformation within the MIR, especially about the use of violence, its divisions and collapse. While I prompt the comparison with other political and military groups such as the IRA or ETA we will be walking three short blocks to the historic "Photographers´Square" in the Concha y Toro patrimonial blocks. Here, while sharing how the square got its name I Will offer you to take a short stroll to the Cultural Center where i live so we can have a refreshment and converse about the topic and share some of the reflections you might have. Other things to note That prior knowledge of Chilean history is not needed. That the sole purpose of this "experience" is to put political violence into perspective. Sharing of personal experiences is encouraged.
Explore the heart of Santiago's historic center
We will explore the heart of Santiago's historic center on foot and see all the essential places, iconic buildings, main spots and learn all about the city's history from its foundation to the present day.

We will hear stories and curious facts that are not commonly available to tourists and you will avoid inconveniences such as walking alone, feeling unsafe or getting lost in the city. We will explore among others: -Plaza de Armas (Main square) -Metropolitan Cathedral -Justice Square -Justice Palace -Former Royal Customs Building -Former National Congress Building -La Moneda Palace (Presidential palace) -Plaza de la Constitución -La Moneda Cultural Center -New York Neighborhood -Stock Exchange Building -St. Augustine's Church -Municipal Theater (Opera house) -San Francisco Church (Oldest Building in town) If you need a different tour start time or date, please send me a message and I will be happy to offer it especially for you.

Hike The Andes outskirts right next to the city
I will drive us to the entrance of the hill, at the beginning of the trail. Once there, I'll give a quick briefing about the hill and the trail, then we start hiking. We will do everything at your own pace. Our goal is to enjoy the landscape, get away from the city, get some exercise, have a good talk and have fun.
