Car Hire Calama

Calama, which lies 2,250 meters above sea level, is one of the most important cities in the region of Antofagasta.

This was not always the case. Originally, Calama was nothing more than a stop and a warehouse on the edge of the trail until it was discovered by Diego de Almagro and Pedro de Valdivia. During a slow process, Calama became the important administrative center of Bolivia. in 1879, Calama in the Pacific war of Chile was occupied, and one of Chile.

Calama the upswing owes the commercial centres and the productivity of the fields. The Chuquicamata mine is the largest main company in Chile for copper. A visit to this mine is absolutely recommended. Due to this expansion, Calama became the most important city in the region.

A trip with the car to the entrance in another world, it worth: San Pedro de Atacama, the driest desert in the world with its archaeological museum. Also found here a stunning natural landscape with its extensive salt works and a few villages of the natives, where this still continue the traditions and customs of the inhabitants.

Very beautiful churches rise up along the entire length of the territory. The oldest church in Chile is the San Pedro de Atacama, whose Dach was built with Cactus tribes.
