The mining town of La Noria has been all but lost to history. Not marked on regional maps and located far from any paved road, the isolated 19th century town has been slowly enveloped by the shifting sands of northern Chile. Though abandoned by residents for more than 50 years, the side-walls and foundations of many of the buildings are still largely intact, resulting in a massive ghost town where street after street of abandoned buildings can be explored. On the hill overlooking the town sits La Noria's cemetery, a macabre final resting place for the former residents. The only (living) people here are workers at a nearby gas facility that travel close to the ghost town to bring trucks to and from their factory. These workers report seeing ghostly lights in the cemetery above La Noria at night and drive through the area as quickly as possible.
