Plaza de Armas, Ancud
(3.4/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • This was busy in our visit as the Chilean Telethon events were taking place. There's a lot of traffic on all sides, but it's still a good place to meet up and relax. 
  • The main square is to move, walk, sunbathe on a bank or discover the legendary creatures of the island. The mythological creatures of Chiloé Island are in fact present in this site.

  • 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.
