Caldera

4.1
Historically an important port town, exporting minerals mined in Copiapo, today Caldera offers ample ways to discover the region's heritage and admire the natural features of the coastal area. The first railway line in the country started here in 1851 to aid the industry of mineral extraction from Copiapo, and the influx of wealth from this arrangement led to the construction of some of the town's main architectural highlights. Sightseeing in Caldera showcases these late 19th-century religious buildings and private residences, which now function mainly as museums. The town's beaches represent the other side of Caldera's attractions, with long stretches of sandy coastline, as well as marine reserves and interesting topographical features. Caldera is in Atacama Region. Plan the details of your Caldera holiday and any onward adventuring with our easy-to-use Chile itinerary builder website .
