Socaire

Socaire
It is located around 90 km of San Pedro de Atacama, (285 inhabitants, altitude 3,218 ms). Of pre-Hispanic origin, it has strong raigambre atacameña. More than a town, it is a succession of crops in terraces in an ample area that take advantage of the slopes in the sector. There are pretty stone houses and, to its term, a small church is elevated, with a stone tower. It was important by its old gold mines, discovered next to the border, and to be next to the way that lead to Antofagasta de la Sierra. This way it lowered towards San Pedro de Atacama the naturalist Federico Philippi, in a trip of harvesting of plants for the National Museum of Natural History of Santiago, initiate in Copiapó in 1885.
