Sewell takes you back in time to the first copper mine in Chile and the largest one in the world. And it is still operational. The scenery is jaw dropping. A must see sight a couple of hours away from Santiago

As I mentioned earlier I went to Sewell and El Teniente some years ago. No more El Tteniente, visits were stopped about four years go. Having read the reviews it seems the day now is made up with extraneous activities which we are not interested...More
