Club De la Union

While at the Club De La Union to attend an event, noticed the beautiful infrastructure still kept form those good old times of almost a century ago.

There were three busts of Grau, Bolognesi and Ugarte and to my surprise while reading a commemorative plaque is that they were not only members as I knew already, but founding fathers!

I set up an appointment to talk with the club's director. Some halls and staircases are simply beautiful and can pass as how it was back in those days (even though the club was originally in another building across the main plaza where our heroes actually founded it.
