The coast of Limari Valley conserve one of the greatest miracles and natural mysteries on earth: the enigmatic Fray Jorge Forest. This surprising place with remnant flora species from ice age is the northernmost austral forest of Chile that lives thanks to Camanchaca oceanic fog and resist the advance and the pressures of the driest desert of the world: the Atacama. Declared as a National Park, Starlight site and UNESCO biosphere Reserve, it has numerous species of birds, plants and trees from different latitudes, times and climates, and a surprising human past of the oldest coastal culture of Chilean prehistory (Huentelauquen culture) who meet the first farmers and indigenous shepherds of the coast (Guanaqueros culture). Both groups testify the arrival of mysterious shamanic tribes from the Atlantic Amazonas side, the Molle´s and Diaguitas Cultures who came from Chaco Forest and Argentinean pampas. Hundreds of years later, pirates, black slaves and a mythical English sailor who survives a shipwreck on Coquimbo´s coast, is taken in by Franciscans due to their needs to have a servant, who would explore the region finding this hidden ancient forest and being converted for this miracle as a friar.
