City of Serenity
Chile's second oldest city, La Serena, is the most important town of the Norte Chico
strip. A colonial town that has seen Peruvians, Spaniards and British troops grace its streets, it is by far one of the prettiest cities in Chile
. Reigning over the mystical and spiritual Valle del Elqui
, it is affectionately known as pisco-land, for it is in this region that the nation's favourite drink is cultivated.
