The salitrary offices of the canton Taltal:
Between Chañaral and Antofagasta, in the heights of the inn and gasoline station "Agua Verde" was located Taltal saltpeter canton. Up to the present, there is a huge amount of ruins, roads and embankments of the sector's railways. The technical reinforcements in extracting the saltpeter were enormous, especially transport, water and energy supply were not easy problems to solve.

Here are some offices and places that still show the spirit of the past decades.

Oficina Alemania: One of the last ones that stilI resist in the canton of Taltal.
Pueblo: The remains of the Matta Office in the middle of the Atacama desert. The cemetery is still holding out.
Santa Luisa: One of the greatest and best known for its social life.
