Oficina Salitrera Santiago Humberstone, Iquique

4.7
Once a center for 19th-century Chile's booming salt production industry, today Oficina Salitrera Santiago Humberstone stands as a ghost town. The town rose up around the saltpeter refineries; some it now functions as a museum, but most of the area remains open for you to tour on your own. Walk around and see what time has changed, visiting the homes of the workers that once hailed from Chile, Bolivia, and Peru. Most of the machines are authentic pieces that functioned during the refinery's operation.

  • Well prepared place for visits, I have gone a couple of times and it is getting better and better taken care of. Bring water and sun screening.

  • It was a pleasure to return to this once thriving office, today after hard work of recovery and care, it shows new spaces where the history of pampino, its noble work and the terrible living conditions are housed. Part of the history of our north. The pulpshop is fantastic. Recommended.
