What to expect

Explore Pukará de Quitor, a Pre-Hispanic stone fortress constructed by the local indigenous people 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, you'll 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, you'll visit the Church of San Pedro, a National Monument built from adobe clay, cactus wood, chañar and carob trees in 1745.
