  • Not much to say about this place really. It's the remains of an old spanish fort, close to town and an interesting visit with great view and some well preserved cannons. Not much else, go with low exp...  more »
  • Only some colonial cannons. It best the view towards the sea that it has from the place. Unbeatable.

  • He strong San Antonio is one of them mandatory within the city of Ancud, this very cute the place, it maintained in perfect conditions. But as always there is a black dot in the surroundings, there is access to the beach which is on one side of the Fort, one can walk down to the beach, the problem esque the beach is quite polluted, full of garbage, bottles and cans of beer which tarnished this place. Hopefully the people that visit this place have respect and take care of this beautiful place of the city.
