Plaza de Armas, Ancud

(3.3/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The square of weapons of Ancud is a place very nice, since in lla is found them beings mythological of the island of Chiloé carved in stone, there are various activities that them more small can perform there, as play to the taca-taca, jump in them beds elastic or walk in small cars. It is always a point of encounter and also there is a small tourist and cultural space in the middle of the square. It only bad are them tens of dogs BA that sleep in the square, serious good that it people take awareness on it holding responsible of pet and this already not follow being a problem for the beautiful square of Ancud.

  • Very picturesque but by careless parties, opposite the Church and the Museum. Ideal to rest in the afternoon, some musical performances can be seen.

  • After remodeling the Plaza de Armas of Ancud it took new life. This square also do various events the week days including local music by speakerphone, crafts and foods of the area. Near the square is the Museum of Ancud, which I recommend to visit without fail.
