We invite you to the amazing mining city Sewell, in the heart of the Andes, at 150 kilometers to the south of Santiago. This city was built at the beginning of the XX century to accommodate El Teniente workers, the world's biggest subterranean copper mine. In a certain moment, there lived more than 15,000 people in its wooden houses. One of the main characteristics is the absence of streets, being the stairs the only ways of access, reason why it's known as the City of Stairs.

In our Sewell tour, we will leave Santiago at the morning heading towards Rancagua. From this city, we will take the Presidente Eduardo Frei Montalva Road, better known as the Copper Road. This highway will take us to the Andes, while we have a panoramic view of the different facilities and plants of El Teniente mine. Once in Sewell, we will go over –for ourselves and together with our guide– the original buildings still standing like the church, the hospital, the theater and the social clubs. Also, we will visit the recent Great Copper Mining Museum, opened in 2010. In our way back, we will have lunch, and then we will continue towards Santiago.

*The tour has two starting points and times: at 8:30 am from Parque Arauco, and at 8:45 am from Movistar Bulding (Baquedano Subway Station). Once the reservation is made, we will contact you to tell us what starting point is better for you.
