El Salvador with its 11,000 inhabitants is located in the Pre-Cordillera, 2300 m high. The city is heavily dependent on mining in the same sector.
El Salvador is a fully planned city. It was built and inaugurated in 1959. There are several restaurants, hostels and fuel stations etc.. El Salvador is an excellent base for excursions to the mountain range of the  Pedernales, La Ola and Asientos sector, since it is only a few kilometers away from those places.

From Copiapó you can take the route to Caldera - Chañaral - Diego, or the slightly shorter alternative of Copiapó - Inca de Oro - Diego de Almagro. Both roads are paved and in good condition.
During a visit, you have to make a walking tour of the city. The "modern" architecture of the 50s and 60s attracts attention.
