“Legend has it that many years ago the pirates who attacked Coquimbo and La Serena took refuge in Guanaqueros to rest after their looting. Here they enjoyed good food, thanks to the variety and abundance of seafood that its warm waters offered. As a place of surveillance they occupied the upper part of the bay and sounded the so-called “Piedra Campana” to give warning signs to the rest, this stone sounds like a bell when struck with another stone.
