Dakar Rally Route, Antofogasta de la Sierra-Catamarca Province

Photo by Axel Kirberl (taken from his blog "mapadeviajes")


Antofagasta de la Sierra is a desertic region over volcanic field.

The main type of volcanic edifice in the area are scoria cones. It is considered by many authors that the cones in the field are only a few thousand years old, thus putting them firmly into the Holocene period. The field lies between the Salar de Antofalla volcanic field and the Cerro Galan caldera.

The lighthouse of San Juan de Salvamento was known as “The End of the World Lighthouse” due to the novel written by Jules Verne (Le Phare du Bout du Monde. Dc.1905), inspired on a photograph taken by the First Scientific Expedition to Antarctica, lead by Adrien de Gerlache between 1897 and 1899 on board of the ship Belgium.

In the 19th century, the shipwrecks were not unusual in this region, since the lack of visibility, the storms and the strong sea currents pushed the ships towards the stones.

For this reason, Piedrabuena requests the Argentine government the installation of a lighthouse in Staten Island.

Jean de Noail, Lord of Parc, named Cape San Juan on January 29, 1706. “De Salvamento” (of the rescuing) was added by Commodore Augusto Lasserre on April 1884, during the construction of the lighthouse and the sub-prefecture, due to the objective of such installations.
