Arica

Arica is a port city located on the northernmost part of Chile’s Pacific coast, with a rich historical heritage. The city was originally inhabited by indigenous people, including the Chinchorro culture, one of the world’s oldest mummification cultures. In the 16th century, the Spanish established a presence in the region, and Arica became an important port for trade between South America and Spain. The city played a role in the War of the Pacific (1879-1884), during which it changed hands between Chile and Peru multiple times.

Some of the key sights in Arica include:

1. El Morro de Arica – A historic hill overlooking the city with a large statue of Christ at its summit that offers panoramic views of the city and the ocean.

2. Lauca National Park – Located near Arica, this national park is known for its high-altitude landscapes, including Chungará Lake and the Payachata volcanic group.

3. Various beaches – Arica has several beautiful beaches, including Chinchorro Beach and La Lisera Beach, which are popular for swimming, sunbathing, and surfing.

4. Multiple archaeological sites – The region around Arica contains numerous archaeological sites, including prehistoric geoglyphs and the world’s oldest known mummies.
