Chile travel

Saltpeter Offices

Relive the history of saltpeter and its significance in the northern part of Chile, where around 200 settlements rose up next to the mines at the end of the 19th century, small towns that brought life into the inhospitable Atacama Desert and that can be visited today as part of specialized tours.

Visit the railway museums, graveyards and industrial areas, as well as archaeological sites that will tell you the story of mining in the country. Visit the offices of Chacabuco, Pedro de Valdivia and Maria Elena. Today, cultural centers or history museums bring to life these mind-blowing spaces that were true in the country’s history.
