The alleyway known as Pasaje Lucrecia Valdés was built in 1924 with a marked neo-Gothic inspiration, reflected in its Medieval architectural style.
Worthy of notice is the wide variety of front door designs and associated details: some feature an entrance porch, or gates, or just steps. A large central area serves as a meeting point for residents.
Pasaje Lucrecia Valdés was named after the wife of the eminent Chilean lawyer and politician Luis Barros Borgoño, who commissioned the construction of this set of houses for his executive staff, thus consolidating the concept of a middle-class residential quarter.
Lucrecia Valdés de Barros Borgoño, Santiago.
