REVIVE THE ERA OF MILITARY RULE THROUGH STORIES
Santiago, the Chilean capital, is a versatile city with a great diversity of tourist options. It would be a mistake to think that you can only visit monuments, museums and go shopping. Santiago has a lot to offer, from city tours to ecotourism and indigenous tourism experiences. You will be surprised to learn that it is the city with the largest concentration of Mapuche population in all of Chile.
This guided tour will be a unique opportunity for a cultural and historical experience. You will visit the mythical town La Victoria, whose streets were an important scenario that experienced the harshness of the military dictatorship with strong confrontations between the people and the military. This neighborhood, through its street art, reflects the union of its people and their strong spirit of struggle and solidarity. As you walk through them, you will be able to relive their history, social problems, struggle, union and organization. You will also visit the Museum of Memory and Human Rights dedicated to commemorating the victims of violations of their rights during this period.
Travolution in Santiago is identity, it is national history that you can travel through and relive from the stories of its own inhabitants. If you are interested in the history of Chile during the period of military occupation (1973 – 1990), you should come and experience it from another perspective..

SANTIAGO, THE CAPITAL
Santiago, the Chilean capital, is a city with a versatile character and diverse touristic options. It would be a mistake to think that the only thing you can do here is to visit monuments, museums and shopping malls. Santiago has a lot to offer - from tours around the city to eco-travel to indigenous tourism.
It was founded by a Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia and, over all these years, Santiago has become a mix of oldest tradition, Spanish influence, and modern architectural wonders that can offer you plenty of things to do and see.
Located at the foot of the Andes on the banks of the Mapocho River, Santiago is surrounded by hills and mountains with incredible views towards natural landscapes where you can enjoy adventure tourism doing skiing and snowboarding, hiking, climbing, rafting and more.
Being the biggest city of Chile and the fifth-biggest in South America, Santiago consists of 37 communes and they are all different, so your perception of the city will depend on the commune you stay in or visit.
Not many people know that but right in the capital of Chile, there are places where indigenous people live. Community tourism and indigenous cultures is what we at Travolution want to make visible. It is always a pleasure to share with our travelers how they lived, cooked and shared their time in a Mapuche community in their Rukas (typical Mapuche construction). Visiting this place is a great way to learn about their history, culture and crafts.
If you are interested in having this special cultural experience, we will be happy to organize a personalized trip for you. If you would like to see other options in Santiago, check them out here or ask us about others that might interest you.
Come and enjoy a different experience of sustainable and community-based tourism!
