El Norte Chico Sights

Cerro de la Virgen

  • Viewpoint/Scenic Overlook

Updated 11/24/2014

Fodor's Review

Devotees of the Virgen de Lourdes, the town's patron saint, consider this hill a place of pilgrimage. Overlooking the city, it affords a great view of Vicuña. It's a 2-km (1-mile) hike north of the city via a path on Baquedano between Independencia and Yungay. Head up in the evening to see the surrounding hills in the Elqui Valley bathed in deep reds and oranges by the setting sun.
