    The place still retains great part of the constructions that can travel freely, that Yes, take plenty of water and sunscreen because the Sun in la Pampa is quite intense during the day.

    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.
