  • It is located almost opposite the port. This monument commemorates the heroes of Iquique. Excellent work and is well maintained.

  • The Valley photo to guard this memory that is a monument to the heroes of the Navy who fought in the battles of Iquique and Punta Thick on May 21 1879. The monument is in the center of Plaza Sotomayor and also has a crypt where are the remains of 22 sailors who fought in the battle. The monument is very well maintained, all it takes is careful to get him, do pass by the square streets and traffic is crazy.
