This place, located in the desert of Atacama, in an old nitrate settlement, tells the story of the rise I had this ore, considered at the time, large income that took our country. It has access that is paid in cash, per person. There are baths, camping areas, a small exhibition of elements of the time at the top of the theatre. It is important to note that Chacabuco, was one of the largest of torture during the dictatorship, being one of their prisoners, Angel Parra.

  • This city open air museum is a landmark in the history of mining and salitreira example of the strategy of the military Government to leave away from major centres the political enemies of the regime. Built in the 20 years of the last century, is located in the region of Sierra Gorda, halfway between Antofagasta and Calama (it is more or less 100 km from both cities). Some facilities such as the theater were renovated but everything else is in ruins, which does not prevent us from having a vision of how it worked the old saltpeter factory and after the prison camp. The city is a fine example of architecture that characterizes the total institutions.
