Cementerio General information
More than just a graveyard, Santiago’s Cementerio General is a veritable city of tombs, many adorned with works by famous local sculptors. The names above the crypts read like a who’s who of Chilean history: its most tumultuous moments are attested to by Salvador Allende’s tomb and the Memorial del Detenido Desaparecido y del Ejecutado Político , a memorial to the ‘disappeared’ of Pinochet’s dictatorship.
To reach the memorial from the main entrance, walk down Av Lima, turning right into Horvitz for another 200m; it’s over the bridge to the right.
