    The geoglyphs of Azapa are located 4 kilometres south-east of Arica are the geoglifos of Azapa. Once more experience in my travels throughout Chile tell me, to not lose the effort and money, it is better to hire the services of a tour guide. Great success, because if you only, most likely not find them. In the sector, which has no signs or visible protection, include two sets of geoglyphs: La Tropilla and Sveto. The Tropilla is a beautiful set of camels headed by two characters with characters "shamanic", which could symbolize the spirits that guide the troop to the coast. Sacred Hill are two anthropomorphic figures, whose meaning is more difficult to determine. As well and all, the trip is worth the time and money invested.

    Various excellent geoglyphs along hillsides in various valleys around Arica. Don't miss the more modern one, which is just as valid a statement as the older ones - this advertises Coca-cola!  more »

    Amazing to see how these survived all these years. Unfortunately the "hot rod" bike riders are defacing some of them, so go while they can still be seen and appreciated.  more »
