Plaza de Armas, Ancud

3.3
#4 of 10 in Things to do in Ancud
Sit and take a break from your day's activities at Plaza de Armas, a small but bustling central square that regularly hosts a craft bazaar. Overlooked by the town hall, the square displays a collection of mythological Chilote sculptures in the central gazebo, echoing a similar collection in the nearby regional museum (located one block south). The city's tourist information office also sits on the south side of the square. Plan your Plaza de Armas visit and explore what else you can see and do in Ancud using our Ancud vacation generator.

    As in all Chiloé, the Church is a place that you should visit, they have that typical thing in the area, a place to photograph. Square in general, has no main attraction.

    Walking the streets of Ancud we stopped to appreciate some of the streets in this place and arrive at the plaza de armas, a very quiet and clean place, people what passes through the place is very nice, there are small monuments that have stories known to some and to others not so much, in English and Spanish.

    When I walk through the square, it was clean and there was a lady cleaning the place. Well maintained areas.

    Beautiful place very indigenous, here you will find some sculptures of the mythological creatures of the island, in cancagua stone. If you want to know the sculptor of these works of art, sees the House of culture front of the plaza.
