Admire sweeping views of the city and sea on El Morro de Arica, a centrally located hill. From the top, you can see the city, port, and cliff towering over the rocks and water below. A statue of Jesus stands on the hill, as does a military history museum. Locals tend to visit the place, so this makes a good spot to meet some people from the area. A quick, steep walk from the center will get you there, or you can hire a taxi. Bring your own food and water.

El Morro de Arica Reviews
Bonita vista, bien cuidado, lo único malo, qué hay agua en los baños. Y no ofrece guía en el museo, por lo demás todo bien. more »Nice view, well maintained, the only bad thing, what is water in the bathrooms. And it doesn't offer guidance in the museum, otherwise everything is fine.

In the military museum you can see different uniforms of the opponents and also the military material. The visit is accompanied by German military music!
Beautiful scenery, great photo ops. This was the site of many battles, and now with a monument to peace. The huge Chilean flag and views of the shore and city of Arica below are gorgeous. We also paid to enter the museum (1,000 pesos adults, 500 for children, about $2 & $1 U.S.) it was simple yet good and did a good job painting the picture of the history of the Morro and momentous things that have occurred there. Great place to get sunset photos. Recommend.
Very nice sightseeing.... great place for pictures!!!
