It is located in Peñalolen district and since 1997 is a memorial place, free and open for public every day.

The place was used as a detention and torture center between 1974 and 1978. During democracy, was recovered and turned in a memorial place and a space for promotion of human rights, thanks to the work of survivors, Human Rights organizations and community.

Inside, many symbolical expressions give homage to those who where retained in the place, like the Roses Garden, with the names of women victims of violence on tiles; “El muro de los Nombres” (Names wall), a Memory Room, which contains belongings of missing detainees; the reconstruction of a cell and a punishment tower and the museum room: Monument Rail Bahía de Quintero, an architectonic project that inside keeps pieces of the rails used to throw bodies of detainees to sea; donated to Villa Grimaldi.
