  • Finely restored and preserved as a museum. Registration of dead heroes on deck and certainly a trophy of war.

  • A ship with a unforgettable experience in the Naval History of Peru and Chile. Its infrastructure, by the time worthy of note. You must not miss it.

  • Very interesting but a pity that not. Unite you with a guide who you can count the interesting and important story. Have that make the tour only and reading the data that rapporteur that not is it same that you it has a guide. There is no sale of memories in this place.

  • Beautiful place. Highly recommended
  • Such an old Peruvian battleship captured by Chilean navy in the 1800's, actually is a beautiful museum that commemorates the Iquique naval battle and the internationally acknowledged heroism of Captain Arturo Prat and his men who died at the main deck during battle, a "must to visit" being in Talcahuano
  • This is a have to visit place if you go to Concepción.
