San Pedro de Atacama is located in an oasis in the Atacama Desert, the driest desert in the world.  As the center of Atacameñan culture and the archaeological capital of Chile, the town thrives on tourism.  A must-see for visitors is the San Pedro Church, a national monument, as well as, the local crafts markets, the Le Paige Father's ecological Museum, and the nearby natural attractions. Many get to San Pedro from Calama, which has an airport and is just under 100 km away.
