Don Diego de Almagro

This statue shows Diego de Almagro, credited as the first European discoverer of Chile. He also paticipated in the Sapnish conquest of Peru. It's located in the Almagro square, and as you can see, not everybody cares about our history...

How sad that someone would damage that statue. I sometimes wonder why a person would do such harm to a thing of beauty.
