We invite you to the amazing mining city Sewell, in the heart of the Andes, 150 kilometers to the south of Santiago. This city was built at the beginning of the 20th century to house the workers of El Teniente, the largest underground copper mine in the world. More than 15,000 people lived in its colorful wooden houses. One of its main characteristics is the absence of streets, with stairs being the only access routes, which is why it is known as the City of Stairs. We will leave Santiago in the morning towards Rancagua. Then you will arrive at the offices of the Sewell Foundation, where you will watch a video and have a safety briefing. Once in Sewell you will have a panoramic view of the production facilities of the El Teniente Division. You will then visit the Teniente Club Building, where you will watch a historical video and visit the different rooms and the old swimming pool. Afterwards, you will have a guided tour of the city, where you will see the emblematic buildings and most representative places of Sewell. After this you will have time to have lunch and rest before the second guided tour of the city, in which you will see the rest of the buildings in the area. Finally you will be able to visit the Museum of the Great Copper Mining and the souvenir shop. After this you will return to Santiago, concluding the tour.
