  • Good thing is the service of public baths to be in the center of the city. It has no main attraction. It is only for a visit by the way.

  • If they say that it is very dry around think like planting trees in the surrounding area, but as? the only way is with water underground

  • It is one of the main attractions of Antofagasta is very beautiful with its sources the clock tower that mimics the big ben, the view of the Cathedral is welcome to go take pictures sitting on the multiple benches is a green oasis, only thing or wrong detail are the Gypsy girls who are quite restrictive, but suffice to say them not or not talk to them and ready
