It was the reinactment of a battle between Spain and Chile. The remains of fortresses that were used to hold off the encroachment of Spain. The residue of awaiting eyes at cannons, hard rock walls with only ocean clashing at the other side. It was formal and thrown together: teenagers who dressed like soldiers who had once fought at the same age over 200 years before. People stood with cameras, leaning over balconies.
