Since its construction this building was the residence of various families until in 1970 became the headquarters of the Socialist Party. After the military coup, it was used as a secret detention center. The State reclaimed the property in 2007.
At present it is a meeting place for reflecting about human rights, and cultural creation. Its main objective is to enable both residents of Santiago and those who visit the city to link up, from the present, with the events that marked part of the history of Chile and thus to keep memory alive.
The place gets its name from the street number that designates the property in the heritage quarter known as Barrio Paris and Londres.
Londres, 38, Santiago.
