The TacnaRegion is bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the west, the MoqueguaRegion on the north, the PunoRegion on the northeast, the Bolivian La Paz Department on the east, and the Tarapaca Region of Chile on the south.
Tacna lived a period of captivity for 50 years; the invaders started a campaign of “Chilenization”, whose purpose was to convince the local population of accepting Chile as the new ruling power, and make them lose their Peruvian identity.
Tacna is a city in southern Peru and the regional capital of the TacnaRegion.
