Pica is a town and commune belonging to the Province of Tamarugal, Tarapacá Region (Chile), in the Norte Grande of Chile.
It is a tourist place, with thermal spas (cochas) in the middle of the desert (the only oasis that Chile has and in Latin America there are only two). Nearby is the town of La Tirana, known for its festivities and the towns of La Huayca, Matilla and Lirima. In this commune, there are several oases in the middle of the Tamarugal pampas, where agricultural activity has flourished, especially the famous Pica lemons (of a different species than the lemons of the rest of the country) and mangoes.
