      Abandoned towns with their empty streets and deserted buildings that fall into disrepair can easily develop a spooky quality. Throw all of that in the middle of the desert somewhere and you get the landscape a ghost story writer is dreaming about. Well in the Chilean desert of La Noria and Humberstone that is exactly what you will find, dusty old buildings that creak in the wind and have an eerie sensation about them. If you visit the old mining town in broad daylight you may not get that chill…

      Humberstone and Santa Laura, Atacama Desert, Chile Home to saltpeter mines, these two company towns in northern Chile were abandoned in 1958. The well-reserved buildings include a theater with its original chairs, houses, a cast-iron swimming pool made from the hull of a ship, a hotel, and grocers’ shops complete with price lists.
