El Morro de Arica, Arica
(4.4/5 based on 900+ 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.

  • Get taxi, they charged us $3500, but it can be climbed on foot. The view is very nice. There you will find the Museum of arms, which is worth visiting, for only $1,000.

  • I had a strange feeling when I went... imagine what happened filled me with pride, see raising the huge flag on the "top of the Hill"... was amazing. Almost indescribable feeling.

  • Very emotional to read the stories of those who fought there. General Lagos, Commander San Martín by Chile and general Bolognesi by Peru.
