What to expect

Depart from your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama towards one of the most important archaeological sites in the area. Visit Pukará de Quitor, a pre-Hispanic stone fortress constructed by the indigenous that dates back to the 17th century. Today it represents an archeological monument and its great historical importance lies in the “Battle of Quitor”, where one of the first clashes between the Spanish conquerors and the indigenous took place.

Next, learn about what is known as the 'Culture of San Pedro' at the village of Tulor. Despite its age, it has been well preserved thanks to the natural conditions of the place. This ancient construction is probably the first settlement of the Atacama Salt Flat. Finally, visit the Church of San Pedro. After this last stop, you will be returned to your hotel in San Pedro de Atacama
