The modern leisure habits result of the right to spare time, increased mobility due to improved transport,
education through travel, and enhancement of healthy environments, consolidated in the Chilean desert, a series
of modern architectures linked to its context. In November 1933 the Ferrocarriles del Estado began publishing
the magazine En Viaje (On Tour), which was the means of disseminating the values and tourism ventures in the
country. The magazine precedes the enactment of the law of the annual holiday in January 1934. Since then, the
State implemented a territorial politics implementation of tourist services, but takes on greater emphasis from the
foundation of the Consorcio Hotelero in 1944, which declares its desire to build hotels in Northern Chile. That
entity then joins with the Organización Nacional Hotelera, and together they are called Hotelera Nacional S.A.
