Mountains, cold, snow and magic; This is Santa Rosa de Los Andes, a Chilean commune located in the Valparaíso Region.
During the 15th century, the Inca civilization settled on the banks of the Aconcagua River, after subduing the natives of those lands, since they fell in love with the climate, the vegetation, the location and its proximity to the mountain range. At that time the territory was baptized under the name of Aconcagua and it was not until 1791 that Ambrosio O'Higgins signed the foundation of Santa Rosa de Los Andes, a name that comes in honor of Santa Rosa, the first American saint.
The economic activity of Santa Rosa de Los Andes is agriculture, accompanied by mining, being copper the main mineral, which is found in the Río Blanco deposit.
Currently Los Andes communicates with Santiago, Valparaíso and is the border with Argentina, connecting these two countries through the Los Libertadores pass, being the first land port in Chile.
Los Andes can amaze you, since this territory is visited by thousands of tourists from Chile and around the world. One of the tourist reference points is the Portillo Winter Center in which the best skiers in America are concentrated, who assure that "it is one of the best snows in the world." On the slopes of this mountain is the Inca Lagoon, a magical space that offers us a varied range of colors during the day and in winter turns into a skating rink. You can also visit the Cerro de la Virgen or the Cerro de las Piedras Paradas, which are located in the heart of Los Andes. The latter gives you a spectacular view of the city.
