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.
