  • Small "strong" is a regular wall with cannons, and that's it, full of artisans and lazy dogs. Niuna grace place, fome.

  • You can not miss this place so full of history. It's like stepping back in time and imagine.

  • This small territory has plates and cannons dating back to mid-18th century, well maintained, but not worth a visit by this or Ancud Chiloe island.

  • This is worth walking to if you are staying in Ancud. Definitely not worth going out of your way to visit. There are much more beautiful old forts with canons on the island. There is some graffiti and it's more of a place for local teens to hang out.
  • Nice and comfy fort with cannons and all the kind of things you normally expect, lacks on restrooms
  • Beautiful windy spot overlooking the bay and ocean.
  • Nice Historical place
  • nice historical place to take some pics
