The Tupahue swimming pool, meaning “place of God” in the Quechua language, sits at the heart of the Metropolitan Park. It first opened in 1966.
Carlos Martner saw the potential in an old quarry that was being used as a dump in a large hollow with spectacular views and chose it as the site for the pool.
The swimming pool measures 82 meters long by 25 meters wide. Visitors can also see the beautiful mural designed by Mexican artist Juan O’Gorman and painted by Maria Martner, which depicts the ties between the Chilean and Mexican peoples.
Please note that the pool is open only during the summer, Tuesday through Sunday from 10:00 a.m. Children up to age 13 pay a reduced fare. Children under the age of 3 are free of charge. Our eco-friendly buses can bring you to the pool quickly, easily and safely.
