Por casi un siglo, Sewell fue el principal campamento de El Teniente -la mina subterránea de cobre más grande del mundo-, empresa minera instalada por Braden Copper Company, entre 1905 y 1906. Con su singular forma, paulatinamente se fue transformando en una ciudad de más de 15 mil habitantes. Se encuentra en la Cordillera de los Andes, a 2.200 metros de altura. Hoy es Patrimonio Cultural de la Humanidad.
