4. Mano Del Desierto, Chile

One of the little known secret destinations for tourists is “Mano Del Desierto.” This huge 11 meter tall sculpture of a human hand protrudes from the desert about 75 km south of the town of Antofagasta. It is the work of the Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrazabal and was built in the 1980s. It is so surprising to see as there is nothing else around but sand.
