San Cristobal de Lipez

The Bolivian Salt Flats are home to two ghost towns: San Antonio de Lipez and San Cristobal de Lipez. Both towns are bursting with history and interesting stories. Discover more about these incredible ghost towns below! The fascinating story of San Cristobal de Lipez is that less than 20 years ago, the entire town was relocated 20 km away from its original site. The reason for this relocation was the discovery of silver and jewels beneath the area that twelve families had settled on to form the town.
