Private Arica City Highlights

Experience the best of Arica with your own personal guide on this private tour of Arica's highlights. Enjoy the history, culture, and gorgeous vistas of this well-loved city without having to deal with crowds on a large group tour. You'll feel like a VIP on this Arica tour, as you're escorted to the city's most popular sights.

Start in the heart of the city, observing the Gothic-style architecture of Saint Mark's Cathedral. Established in 1876, this building has an iron and wood door which was prefabricated in France by Gustave Eiffel. Afterward, visit the nearby former Customs building, erected in 1874 with materials that were also supplied by Eiffel. From there, journey down the southern coast to the beaches of El Laucho and La Lisera. There, you'll see the city's history unfold through beautiful painted panels. Stop at the epicenter of the area's local fishing industry and take a peek at the main generator of Arica's local economy.

Continue to Azapa Valley to admire the famed Cerro Sombrero and Cerro Sagrado geoglyphs. These huge historical drawings were scratched into the surface of the valley's slopes, serving as route markers for desert caravans. At the San Miguel Archaeological Museum, you'll see a wide variety of jewelry, textiles, ceramics, and other pre-Columbian artifacts, like the world's oldest mummies, dating back to 5,000 BC.

Pick up a beautifully handcrafted artifact or two at the Parinacota village market. From the promontory (steep hill) of Morro de Arica, enjoy great views overlooking the city. These views provide the appropriate scenery to imagine Peruvian soldiers making their last defense during the War of the Pacific.
