    The village of Tulor is located near the Ayllus de Coyo and the Ayllú de Tulor, 10 kms. To the southwest of the town of San Pedro de Atacama. This place is part of the Los Flamencos National Reserve.

    Tulor is currently managed by the Atacameña de Coyo community. Studies show that the village is about 2250 years old, which corresponds to the period of agriculture and early pottery of the Culture of San Pedro de Atacama. The Village of Tulor is one of the first settlements in the vicinity of San Pedro de Atacama and it is presumed that it was a great oasis. Life in this place was made possible by the presence of the San Pedro River, which passed through the vicinity of the village. In Tulor there is a consolidation of the economy of collecting seeds of carob and chañares, the cultivation of corn, the raising of cattle and hunting. In this place the archeologists found for the first time finding of agriculture, being the corn for the first time in this village. In this same place were found the first signs of sedentarism and the domestication of animals such as the llama, the alpaca, without stopping hunting in animals such as vicunas or guanacos.

    The first studies on the site of Tulor were carried out by Father LePaige in 1958. There are several construction zones in Tulor, with several villages scattered over 4 square kilometers. The one that is discovered and studied by archaeologists is what is known as Aldea uno.

    In 1980, the first archaeological investigations were made and a reconstruction of two buildings similar to the original ones is made. The emerged areas or headwaters are almost 2 meters from the base of the buildings. It is presumed that the landscape was very different from what it is today and a great change modified the structure of this village. Desertification and lack of water are presumed to have triggered the exodus from the village of Tulor. It is also presumed that wind storms later dragged saline sands from the salt mountain range to bury the village. The architecture of the buildings is round and is characterized by the fact that the buildings were oriented to the Licancabur volcano. The doors frame the volcano almost perfectly, who was a deity for the Atacameño people.

    At present the rooms that are exposed are subject to erosion, product of the strong prevailing wind during storms that can reach 100 km. Per hour.

  • Iglesia San Pedro de Atacama

    Address:
    San Pedro de Atacama, Antofagasta Region, Chile .

    • The Church of San Pedro de Atacama:

    The Church of San Pedro de Atacama is located next to the town square of the same name, located in the Atacama basin, in the II Region of Antofagasta.

    San Pedro de Atacama is an oasis that, nourished by the San Pedro and Vilama rivers, served as a settlement for the Atacama culture during the pre-Columbian era, which influenced by the Tiwanaku culture and later by the Incas, reached a high degree of development.

    With the arrival of the Spaniards, this town was dominated and evangelized, establishing Christianity in a process of cultural syncretism that has left its mark until today.

    The temple of San Pedro was constructed in the year 1557, possibly in dependency of the Bishopric of Cuzco. However, the building that remains until today is the result of an extension over the previous temple, made in the mid-eighteenth century, on which, in turn, have been partial reconstructions required after earthquakes and fires.

    The Church of San Pedro is the largest among the Atacameño churches. It was erected on a foundation of stones and for its construction was used mortar, mud plasters with straw, and woods of carob, chañar and cactus tied with leather strips.

    Built on a Latin cross with a single nave that is 41 meters long and 7.5 meters wide, it has two lateral chapels that give it the shape of a transept; in addition to a baptistery near the access, a sacristy in the back, choir and an adobe bell tower dating from 1965, when it was built to replace another older built in wood.

    It has all the characteristics of the Andean mestizo style, being of compact volumetry, with adobe walls almost one meter wide and a gabled roof that ends in continuous eaves.

    Inside it has an altarpiece on the main altar, with stucco and painted motifs on the structure of wood, adobe and stone, baroque style.

    The Church of San Pedro de Atacama was declared a Historical Monument in 1951.

    As a result of the damage it has suffered with the earthquakes that have affected the region, important restoration work began in 2014, during which two ancient paintings of angels that were not known were discovered; besides ceramics, bone remains and tools. The works were inaugurated on June 26, 2015, shortly before the celebration of San Pedro and San Pablo.

  • Los Monjes de Pacana

    Address:
    San Pedro de Atacama, Antofagasta Region, Chile .

    • The Pecan Monks in the Salar de Tara:

    Also called the Salar Protectors.

    Before going up to the Monks of the Pacana, we advise visitors to spend a couple of days in San Pedro de Atacama, before going up to altitudes above 4,000 meters, such as the Salar de Tara and its surroundings.

    To access these natural monuments, you must take the road from San Pedro de Atacama to the Jama pass on route ch-27.

    Monks of the Pacana are one of the attractions not so well known in San Pedro de Atacama, easy sighting, understanding, and can go on their own by car. It is on the international road to Paso Jama, to Bolivia and is the obligatory entrance for those who wish to venture into the Salar de Tara, one of the attractions next to the Laguna Legía (Huaitiquina), the toughest to visit in San Pedro de Atacama. This sector is part of the Flamingos National Reserve, which at this point should be a National Park, due to the superlative need for the protection of biodiversity.

    The Monks of the Pacana Sentinels of Tara or Moais de Tara by the similarity of some formations with the Easter Island are imposing stone pillars, located vertically in the plain near the Salar de Aguas Calientes. Because of their thin and random shapes similar to the silhouettes of monks, they were called like that. There are those who defend the thesis that the name of sentinels was granted by walkers who saw erect sentinels, protectors of the place, due to their large size and many times resembling human figures.

    These beautiful rock formations, with volcanic characteristics, were molded during millions of years by the erosion of the wind.

    These Moais de Tara, as they are also called, as we said before, by the similarity with the Moais of Easter Island is the prelude to other phenomenal excursions such as the Salar de Tara, which can only be reached with guide and / or indication of GPS. Many people have lost their way and have had to be rescued from Tara, especially in summer when the Bolivian winter rages.

    It is common for the sector to walk very characteristic animals of the highlands such as vicuñas and flamingos, because it is in that area, that of the Aguas Calientes salt flat, where they get their main food. Also in older times, the roads that led to this sector served as grazing routes for some camelids because there was a lot of fertile plains and bofedales.

    Generally in the place there are excursions throughout the year, as there are no great climatic variations and it is very close to other tourist places such as the Salar de Tara, the salar de Puja, the Salar de Aguas Caliente.

    We recommend visiting the Moais de Tara, the Monks of the Pacana or the Tara Sentinels, as these formations are called, due to the great beauty, the overwhelming aspect of these capricious formations, raised spaced in different sectors of the place, as distributed in a Huge outdoor museum, which can be accessed by any vehicle, without the need to use a 4x4. For the most daring, this can be the access to one of the most beautiful adventures of San Pedro de Atacama: the visit to the Salar de Tara.
