El Morro de Arica, Arica

4.5
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.

  • Important spot for history of Arica as well as spectacular views. Just note that the Museum at the top is not open on Mondays, so if you can time your visit to avoid Monday, do so  more »
  • Pedestrian access is well signposted and is affordable even for the lacking of physical activity like me. To reach the top the character war and militarized facilities bothered me though to explore in detail you can get information and stories (by means of computer graphics & applications) the arrival and establishment of native peoples
