The Region II of Antofagasta is the 2nd largest Region in Chile (126,049 km2 / 48,668 sq miles) and largest in the north of the country, its capital is the important port city of Antofagasta. The Region used to be part of Bolivia (when it was known as the Litoral Department) until the War of the Pacific (1879-1883), after which it was annexed by Chile. The driest parts of the Atacama Desert (and the world) are found here, and mining is the major industry. The Region also contains northern Chile's most popular tourist destination, San Pedro de Atacama.
