30 Diplomatic Academy of Chile in Santiago, Chile

The Edwards Palace was built in 1888 as the residence for Arthur Edwards. In 1913 it became the headquarters and a social venue for a political party called Club September. Then 60 years later it was named a National Historic Monument, completely refurbished and began to house the Academia Diplomática de Chile. This institution’s mission is to train students to become political diplomats. The Andrés Bello Diplomatic Academy is named after a Venezuelan-born philosopher and author who had a significant role in the independence of his country during the early 19th century. Later he became a professor, lawyer and senator in Santiago. Andrés Bello is also credited with founding the University of Chile in 1842.
