El Morro de Arica, Arica

(4.4/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Admire sweeping views of the city and sea on El Morro de Arica, a centrally located hill. From the top, you can see the city, port, and cliff towering over the rocks and water below. A statue of Jesus stands on the hill, as does a military history museum. Locals tend to visit the place, so this makes a good spot to meet some people from the area. A quick, steep walk from the center will get you there, or you can hire a taxi. Bring your own food and water.

  • A place of incredible with an unbeatable view. I am moved by your story. It has a small museum. I recommend to go walking by the side stairs coming down the street Columbus. You can't go to Arica without raising the nose!

  • Although it is more characteristic of Arica, I think that they could harness it more with guides. Is something fome
