10 Población La Pincoya
Av. Recoleta con La Pincoya.
One of the most famous “poblaciones” in Santiago, originated as an informal occupation of empty land and then formalized and incorporated into the urban structure, La Pincoya shows, together with other neighborhoods with which it shares a common origin, as La Bandera or La Legua, a high sense of political and social identity. This has been nourished by its history and its role during the dictatorship. Signals of that identity can be still seen in its famous murals, and perceived in a memory-charged environment, evident in its streets, its walls and its informal architecture.
