Town of Putre


The Town of Putre, which was founded in 1580, is situated at over 3,500 meters above sea level and about 150 km east of the Arica.  A suggested stop along the way is Chungara Lake, which is an ideal place to rest and acclimate to the elevation.  The town is also architecturally known for its stone arches.
