Our tour begins with a drive past Lisera and El Laucho beaches, continuing into the Azapa Valley. In the distance from the Azapa Valley, you can spot several geoglyphs, unique drawings of humans and animals that early Indigenous peoples created by scratching the salty surface of the brightly colored rocks. We will make a brief stop for photos at replica geoglyphs.
Next, we will continue to the San Miguel de Azapa Archeological and Anthropological Museum, known for its collection of artifacts from the Chinchorro people, dating to between 6,000 and 8,000 BC. Then we will visit Morro de Arica Hill, where we will see the panoramic views that the Chilean military used to its advantage during the War of the Pacific. Before returning to the pier, we will stop at Colon Square for a visit of San Marcos Cathedral, a 19th-century Gothic edifice designed by Gustave Eiffel.
