  • Linda plaza with green areas and benches with shade for rest. Anyway it is worth going to see it since it is close to the pedestrian area of the Centre of Antofagasta and has several historical monuments as it is mainly the clock donated by the British colony in 1911, that all this sounds precious to the 12 day (and which is a national monument). Missed to learn a little more about the old town of the city
