  • Another interesting historic fort site. Nice views from this headland near Ancud. Here was a few vendors selling souvenirs and crafts on the path down to the fort.  more »

  • 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
