    At the foot of the Hill is set some basic services, operates the station of the same name, which, thanks to the transfer of copper concentrate coming from the nearby mine of División Andina of Codelco, comes to be the only one of the old trans-Andean railway opened in 1910 which is still in operation. In front of the village and on the opposite bank of the Río Blancor, is the High Mountain School of the Army, founded in 1954 under the inspiration of the Scuola Militare Alpine.
