Activities Overview: Vicuña - Other Activity Vicuña - Chile

Although Vicuña is a very small town, there is a surprising variety of activities to keep travelers busy. The town is littered with little museums, most notably the Museo Gabriela Mistral. It is the largest museum in the region devoted to the life and work of the Nobel Prize winning poet. There are several pisceras near town where pisco, the national liquor, is distilled, including Planta Pisco Capel, the largest producer of pisco in the country. These distilleries are open year-round for tours and pisco tastings. The tourist-friendly Mamalluca Observatory is a 20-minute drive from town. The Tololo Observatory, which is not as accessible to the public, shimmers in the sun on a nearby hill.
