Antofagasta

3.7

Pearl of the North

A major port city of northern Chile, Antofagasta officially became part of the country in 1904, when the Treaty of Peace and Friendship between Chile and Bolivia formerly enshrined a new regional status quo after the War of the Pacific (1879-83). After Santiago, Antofagasta is the second-largest city in the country and a major center of Chile's mining industry. Because the commercial and industrial center generally focuses on its residents rather tourists, traditional attractions in Antofagasta remain fairly limited. Still, the rapidly developing skyline and bustling downtown area show a city in flux and the whole place offers an authentic look at contemporary Chile. Antofagasta is in Antofagasta Region.
