- Tulor village was discovered in 1956 by the father Gustavo le Paige S.J. It is one of the oldest human settlements on salt bed, dates from between 800 BC and 500 AD. The village is now an open museum and being just 10 kms distance from San Pedro de Atacama, is great for those who enjoy archaeological and cultural sites.
The houses were constructed with a circular technique on clay, reaching almost the 2 meters height. Once on the site, enter in one of the houses, it will surprise you the coolness and the tenuous inner light.
