Packed with old stone churches in a unique urban landscape, La Serena represents one of Chile's oldest settlements, equally popular with architecture buffs and beachgoers.
Do some cultural sightseeing at San Agustin, Convent and Church and Iglesia Inmaculada Concepcion. Discover out-of-the-way places like Cavas Del Valle and Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory. Change things up with these side-trips from La Serena: Reserva Nacional Pinguino de Humboldt (in Punta Choros), Pisco Elqui (Horseback Riding Tours, Fundo Los Nichos, & more) and Vicuna (Parque Los Pimientos, Gabriela Mistral House and Museum, & more). Spend the 30th (Sun) exploring nature at Fray Jorge National Park. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Gabriel Gonzalez Videla Museum, look and learn at Cielo Sur Observatory, stroll through Enchanted Valley (Valle del Encanto), and explore the different monuments and memorials at Cementerio Ingles.

For reviews, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the La Serena trip itinerary planner .

Expect a daytime high around 68°F in December, and nighttime lows around 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 14th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
