Where to stay in La Serena

La Serena provides a varied selection of sleeping options, with the area between the main bus station and the town center featuring at least one hostel on every street. Despite this abundance of lodgings, many hotels book up fast at the height of the tourist season (summer: January-February), and some refuse visitors on single-night stays. If you're looking for the ultimate in space and comfort, consider renting a furnished apartment on the coastline.

  • Two blocks south of Plaza de Armas, built in the early 1600s. It’s stone construction, with a chunky tower and fancy baroque facade. Very pretty.  more »
  • The Church is very beautiful (to me like even more than the Cathedral), but we must also mention that Gabriela Mistral had a very special relationship with the Franciscans. They administer the royalties from their works. There is a small chapel where stands a beautiful poem by Gabriela used to meditate.

  • It is a good time to visit this church whose architecture is welcome, especially abroad. Pretty Bell Tower, original as the steeples of the city.
