We have on our two visits to Iquique used Baquedano as our primary grid line, as it were, as we walk about the city. It make a great reference point from one side of the Malaecon to the central area. There are a number of smaller museums, points of interest along the street but much would be well served with... More

Free, nice and relaxing place, patrimonially protected and beautiful, all the houses and architecture shows an example of the care about pieces of history that represented the society centuries ago. Many restaurants for the visitors waiting for a nice afternoon.

It's hard to rate this street. The end near the main square is definitely very good with several nice restaurants and pathways complete etc. The other end near the beach and the middle section is just a long footpath construction zone and lots of closed restaurants, bars and buildings. To be fair it was a Sunday during the day and... More

On this street there are many museums, restaurants, and finally the main plaza at the north end. On a Saturday night in June I was lucky enough to watch the regional cueca competition in the plaza and the same night see a parade of indigenous dancers. Churro vendors and artisans abounded, along with restaurants with outdoor seating. The street almost... More

Went to see what happened to the past. Compliments, many houses have been properly restored and on some others, they are actively working. Last thing to do: reactivate the tram, which is beautiful!!

The restoration of the old wood (Oregon Pine from the USA-still a much sought-after wood in the upscale Chilean home) from a century ago is nice to see as progress is made year by year. There are some nice restaurants along the walk too. BUT, if there is no one in a restaurant during meal times and others are busy,... More
