Walk around downtown Iquique and let yourself be transported to a time where ladies wore taffeta and used parasols, and men handlebar mustaches. Be amazed by the buildings that maintain the glamour of the abundance of saltpeter times.
Start by admiring the architecture of the Arturo Prat Avenue Customs Office, which also houses the Navy Museum, or walk along the Passenger Pier. There you can get a boat to visit the exact site where the Esmeralda corvette sank during the famous Iquique Naval Battle.
