Plaza de Armas, Ancud

3.4
#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. Put Plaza de Armas into our Ancud travel planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • A pleasant surprise finding concerning the chilota mythology sculptures: trauco, the invunche, Tenten-Vilu and Caicai-Vilu, pincoya among others. We were lucky that the sculptor was in place working on a new piece. In the center of the square is an artisan sample, as well as tourist information.

  • Linda plaza, surrounded in their corners of mythological sculptures. Right in the Middle below, there are crafts and very good natural products. There is everything to eat goodies, try the great Neapolitan pizza ones!
