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

Absolutely worth to see it. I advise to take a tour from Rancagua, as it is not possible to go there by yourself - organized tour obligated. Also the price was ok - about 25,000 pesos per person including lunch, guide, entry to the museums...More

I've reviewed my trip elsewhere on this site. It's well worth a visit but you'll probably need to contact Ignacio at VTS Tours in Rancagua. It costs around US$40 there and back from Santiago.
