ABOUT la calera

On the banks of the Aconcagua River, on the side of the Quillota Province, is located La Calera, a commune that is part of the Valparaíso Region. The name of La Calera refers to "lime quarry", since the site was known for the massive production of lime, a material that was extracted from the hills that are located south of the city.

The origins of this population go back to a small town of Jesuits, who owned the land for 139 years, until the religious order was expelled from it in 1767. Later a small town arose around some factories and centers of lime production, this being the main economic activity of the commune. La Calera limits to the east with Hijuelas, to the south with La Cruz and to the north and west with Nogales, it is located 61 km from Valparaíso, and 118 km from Santiago; The city can be accessed through the Panamericana North highway number 5.

La Calera is renowned for its hot summer and prolonged dry climate, which is common in the valleys of central Chile, but at the same time receives ocean currents thanks to its relative proximity to the Chilean sea. On the hottest days of summer, La Calera can reach temperatures of 35 °C, while in winter it does not drop below 4 °C.

The Aconcagua River is the main water source of La Calera, and it is also the main tourist spot of the commune, together with the train station. The railway was a project that was in La Calera since the middle of the 19th century, since it was a conveyance between Santiago and Valparaíso. However, the current station was built during the decade of the 30s of the last century, that station represented a new architectural style and because of that it was declared a National Historic Landmark in 2014.
