El Moro, the Mound of Moravia

The verdant El Moro
Nestled around a dormant mound of garbage, the people of Moravia descend from the internal migrant recyclers who settled the neighborhood to make a living from the trash

Rancho de los Recicladores
Shanty homes are still scattered atop the trash pile, el Moro, but many have been demolished by the government and local utility companies

Cemetery of Destroyed Dwellings
Bamboo marks the location of a removed home. The hill is dotted with such graves and is a powerful component of the comuna's collective memory.
