Gigante de Atacama Travel Guide

Gigante de Atacama

Although there are more than 5,000 geoglyphs in the Atacama, this one is the most iconic. The Gigante de Atacama is an 86-meter depiction of a giant man (or perhaps Pachamama, otherwise known as Mother Earth) that looks like a computer-game character from the 1980s. Of course, this geoglyph is far older—most likely dating back to 900 AD—and was created by the area's indigenous peoples.
