The southern wall of Tiliviche’s quebrada also features some of the most impressive geoglyphs in Chile. They’re best viewed from the lay-by just off the Panamericana, a few hundred metres up from the bridge on the northern side of the quebrada. From this vantage point, you can see the images in all their splendour – a large crowd of llamas covering the hillside. All of the llamas are moving in the same direction, towards the sea, and it’s thought that the drawings were designed to guide caravans descending from the mountains on their journey towards the coast.
