Here we will discover the splendid past of the so-called "White Gold". We make a brief stop in Pozo Almonte.
After that, we will visit the Pintados Geoglyphs, located 96 kilometers away from Iquique and 1000 meters above the sea level. It is a group of more than 350 figures drawn over the slopes of the Coastal Mountain Range, distributed in thematic groups representing animal, geomethric and human shapes. This art was used in the past as guide by the native culture of the area in the routes from the coast to the mountain range. This figures were also used as a ritual representation.
