Silversea Luxury Cruises Nach ARICA

ARICA

Arica is Chile’s northernmost city and the capital of the Region of Arica and Parinacota. Its 240,000 inhabitants make up almost 98% of the region’s population. With an average temperature of 18 degrees Celsius Arica is known as the “city of eternal spring”. Although it is within the Atacama Desert, one of the driest places in the world, and several years can pass before it rains in the city, a fertile river valley dissects it. Fruit and vegetables are produced there and Arica is famous for its olives. View more

Arica’s port had been important for the Spanish Empire since 1545 when silver was brought down to the coast from Potosi (Bolivia) –this attracted English and Dutch pirates which looted Arica on several occasions. Today the port serves as a free port for goods from landlocked Bolivia. Arica belonged to Peru until 1880, when Chilean troops took the “El Morro” hill above the port during the War of the Pacific. It is possible to walk up to the giant flagpole and small military museum on the hill, from where there are excellent views across the city, port and valley. Attractions in or near Arica include the Museum of Azapa dedicated to the Chinchorro culture with the oldest mummies in the world going back 7,ooo years, several beaches and three buildings said to have been designed by Eiffel.

Town Highlights

After lunch, continue to Arica's "Colon Square", also known as the "Plaza de Armas" or "Plaza Colón". Lear about the monuments and buildings set around the square, including the Church of San Marcos. The prefabricated, wrought iron church was built as a replacement for the previous church that was swept away by a tidal wave in 1869. Erected in 1876, this Gothic-style construction stands proudly over the main square, and boasts a beautiful, wooden door made at the Gustave Eiffel et Cie. workshops. Lastly, visit the nearby market, where there are plentiful opportunities to pick up a souvenir.

Located at the mouth of Azapa River, Arica is Chile's northernmost city. The 'City of Eternal Spring' - a name given due to its year-round mild and sunny days - lies at the mouth of the Azapa Valley, a fertile oasis in the northern extreme of the Atacama Desert and a mere 11 miles (17.7 kilometres) from the Peruvian border.


Azapa Valley Geoglyphs

The tour commences driving along the coast, passing by the Lisera and El Laucho beaches towards Azapa Valley, well known for its olives production. On the way, seen from the distance are several geoglyphs that are unique drawings of human and animal forms created centuries ago by the native aboriginals, drawing over the sandy walls with unexplained figures. A short stop near Cerro Sombrero will be made allowing a closer view and photo opportunity of the geoglyphs.

Codpa village is a surprisingly green oasis located in a deep canyon at an altitude of 1,850 metres (1.15 miles) above sea level. Benefitting from Chile's best climate, the village is renowned for its church, fruit culture, stone engravings and its "artisanal" wine called Pintatani.


Atacama Desert and Presencias Tutelares Sculptures

En route pass through the Atacama Desert, one of the world's driest deserts. The first stop is a photo opportunity to marvel and record the Presencias Tutelares Sculptures, giant sculptures created by Chilean sculptor Juan Díaz Fleming. Continue driving towards an area filled of cactus, where a stop will be made to take pictures, situated in the foreground of the Cordillera de Los Andes. After some minutes, proceed to Codpa Village.


Codpa Village

During the pre-Hispanic period, Codpa Village was the seat of the cacique of Altos de Arica, who governed the tribes of the region. The town is located on the headwaters of the River Vitor, which ensures a supply of extremely pure water, made more precious by being found in this extremely dry part of the planet. The land is very fertile, producing different kinds of fruits and the grapes from which the traditional Pintatani wine is produced.


Codpa Walking Tour and Shaman Ceremony

Upon arrival at Codpa Village, take a guided walking tour to admire the architecture. Next, attend to a ceremony performed by a medicine man or shaman, who blessed the mother-earth with coca-leaf while enjoy a drink of typical Pintatani wine.
