  • Is a tower of 11 meters. Painted red, white, and red stripes. Its name is due to a set of islets which gave him a French expedition in 1883. This operation automatically and is closed to the public, is accessed near the promenade which is made by the Beagle Channel that is made with the excursion that departs from the local port.

  • We went in a boat to visit the lighthouse and the island of birds and wolves... a little along the tour. Me bored by now.

  • The view from here is simply spectacular! I recommend doing an excursion with Patagonia Advanture Explorer, as I had a great time with them!
