  • Situated on in front of the Plaza Sotomayor the Monumento a Los Heroes de Iquique is a cultural work with the surnames of those who gave their lives for the freedom of the city, with magnificent sculptures in four sides you find some different detail. Is a guard during the day la. So don't even think about scratching and trying to break the images.

  • From the port only 2-3 minutes this monument is located. Unfortunately, it is surrounded from all sides by major roads. But it's nice to look at and in the background there is the headquarters of the Chilean Navy

  • The monument reminds one of the heroic deeds of the Chilean Navy, more importantly, is a very well kept place which you can visit and photograph in about 20 minutes, highly recommended.
