  • Built in 1889, at the time of the greatest economic splendor (for some), product of the saltpetre exploitation, this beautiful building is still preserved, barely, to the delight of those who have the opportunity to visit it on the inside. It's not big, and it was designed, as all theaters of that century, differing social classes and exclusive boxes for the wealthy of the era could enjoy works undisturbed. You should visit it, if possible with a guide, because it makes us think about what we have been (and are) as a society.

  • The theatre is located in repair for what cannot be visited. Unfortunate, since it is very cute, I visited many years ago.

  • Certainly it is worth knowing and imagine times gone in Iquique was a more important than Santiago city. There is an entire Golden mystery inside, claiming that there are ghosts there. At the moment it is closed because they are finally recovering it.

Where to stay in Iquique

For dependable chain options, look for hotels located along the beachfront--a good area for anyone visiting Iquique to swim, surf, and paraglide. Hotels near the beach also tend to stay relatively expensive throughout the year, so if you're visiting on a budget, consider one of the city's many hostels. Rental apartments distributed across Iquique accommodate visitors looking for more privacy and space.
