city in Chile. In the city there is an archaeological museum, founded in 1943,
near the city - the astronomical observatory Cerro Tololo. The city stores many
colonial buildings that, along with the sea beaches along the Avenida del Mar,
makes it a popular tourist destination among Chileans and Argentines,
especially during the summer months, January and February. A trip to the nearby
Elki Valley, where several internationally significant space observatories
live, is also highly recommended, where, perhaps, the brightest starry sky in
the world can be seen at night. But even in the daytime, the valley has its own
charms: the vegetation, irrigated by the river and lush green tones, contrasts
sharply with the semi-arid environment.
