  • Well-kept, with green areas. It has some historical monuments of renown. Good choice to complete a walk by Arica.

  • After touring the Center, is pleasant visit the plaza, is near the Morro, and offers a place of step with beautiful view.

  • A few years ago we visited Arica and we were in the plaza Colon, today we are quite surprised with remodeling, already that despite having been tampered... did not lose its essence, still preserving corners that were at the time, managing to preserve the old air and beauty.
