Ckamur is an ethnic building which wants to rescue the pre-Hispanic past of Caldera Port and its surroundings, whose construction made of reinforced quincha, with cane and wooden partitions, provides unique conditions for thermal stability and seismic resistance.

The quincha is an aboriginal constructive method of Atacama which uses natural materials from this region: it consists of brea canes of our rivers, coated by a mixture of mud and straw. Selected materials and aboriginal objects, made by local craftsmen, dress each apartment to evoke that native legacy and learn about it: clay of the Diaguitas, wood of Atacama, weavings of the Collas, reeds and canes of Totoral.

Ckamur is aimed at ethnotourism, by showing guests the archaeological patrimony of the region of Atacama through its facilities, but also by visiting the ancestors’ vestiges on field, guided by qualified local staff with vast experience and knowledge of the patrimony of Atacama.
