Fuerte de Niebla, Niebla
(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
On the edge of the Pacific Ocean stands Fuerte de Niebla, one of the historical Valdivia forts which the Spanish Empire built in the 17th century in order to protect the city. The fort's foundations lie on a cancagua stone slope about 30 meters high, dominating the entire bay and open sea. Original canons still line the cliffs edge overlooking the bright blue water. See soldiers reenact traditional colonial ceremonies dressed in original costume. Walk inside the Castilian House where numerous drawings, maps and photos illustrate the history and significance of the fort. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Niebla holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Fuerte de Niebla and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • They are beautiful facilities, now is fenced access with a very pretty grating, the view from the square that is in front of the Fort, is very beautiful, is seen in all its glory the Valdivian jungle. The truth is that I don't know how will be, since they had closed before the posted time. A shame to travel from pucon to Valdivia, almost exclusively to meet the strong, and stay in the attempt.

  • Excellent opportunity to go, nice view. The only downside are excessive hatchings and structure that takes away something of 'naturalness' to the Fort.
