Monument to the Heroes of Iquique in Valparaíso, Chile

The Battle of Iquique consisted of two naval confrontations against Peru during the War of the Pacific in 1879. The Monumento a los Héroes de Iquique was erected at Plaza Sotomayor in 1886 in memory of the fallen Chilean sailors. On top is a statue of Arturo Prat who died while commanding the Esmeralda. Below him are other sculptures by Pierre Dennis. Beneath this tribute is a vault with several of the heroes’ remains.
