We start our journey “from the ancestors” at the oldest archaeological site of the Salt Flat basin: The first atacameñan settlement founded around 900 B.C.
Pukará de Quitor
This old fortress is the perfect place to learn about the happenings related to the arrival of the Spaniards. Its strategic position on the accessible side of a cliff in the canyon of the San Pedro River also brings about an impressive view over the San Pedro oasis, the valley of the homonymous river and the Andean mountain range.
Toconao garden & lunch
Before having lunch in one of the typical restaurants of Toconao we stroll through the beautiful gardens of this quiet village. In a conversation about ancestral agriculture and a tasting of typical products we get to know the essence of Toconao.
In the most southern oasis of the Salt Flat, a local guide accompanies us to Peine´s archaeological sites: petroglyphs and prehispanic ruins.
