We'll board a double-decker bus that will take us around Tacna's most important spots, and learn about these locations with a bilingual guide.
The bus will continue on to the Neo-Renaissance Tacna Cathedral, designed by the famous Alexandre Gustave Eiffel. The next stop will be the Bab ul Islam mosque. The place of worship is the main representation of Islamic religion in Tacna in fact, it is the only Islamic building in the country!
