An imposing silver smelter abandoned over a century ago is now the backdrop for a cultural facility with close to 2,000 m2, implemented with an open-air amphitheater, an auditorium, and exhibition rooms on geology, archeology and astronomy. The Huanchaca ruins are adjacent to it and are conceptually and commercially associated with the Enjoy Antofagasta casino and resort. This structure was inaugurated in 1892 and is a national monument.
