For a long time, we wanted to show some images of a trip we made to Tacna; However, in this current situation we live in and since trips will soon resume, we are sure that the city of Tacna will be one of the most chosen destinations, as we will tell you about Alto de la Alianza.

The monumental complex “Alto de la Alianza” and the Campo de la Alianza Site Museum are located on the Intiorko hill, eight kilometers from the city of Tacna in Peru. The Campo de la Alianza site museum is located at the base of the monument erected in honor of the combatants of the 1880 Battle of Alto de la Alianza.

The museum is part of the Alto de la Alianza Monumental Complex, which is a complex inaugurated on May 26, 1983, and whose construction began in 1979, promoted by the military government of Francisco Morales Bermúdez. The monument shows eight white obelisks whose inclination towards the south denotes the fighting spirit of the heroic city of Tacna.

On the sculptures placed on the obelisks, in Wikipedia, you can read: Eight stainless steel sculptures created by the artist Holguer Caprio Dextre accompany the monument, with the aim of resisting the environment of the area, and as a modern technique that has allowed advances and sculptural displays. The set summarizes actions and attitudes in the history of the city of Tacna, heroism, resurgence, and projection into the future.
