Castro

4.1
Main city on Chile's Chiloe Island, Castro represents one of the country's oldest inhabited settlements, making its fortune as both a tourist center and transportation hub. Despite modern developments and growing tourism infrastructure, the town remains relatively compact, so you can easily enjoy your Castro sightseeing experience on foot. Popular attractions in Castro include wooden houses on stilts, outdoor markets, several museums, and a World Heritage-listed church built in the 1880s. Castro also serves as an ideally placed base for excursions across the Chiloe Archipelago, famed for containing 15 more Unesco-protected churches. Castro is in Isla Chiloe. Take stress off the schedule by using our Chile online attractions planner .
