Fuerte de Niebla, Niebla

4.5
#1 of 9 in Museums in Los Rios Region
History Museum Museum
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.

Where to stay in Niebla

Accommodation options in Niebla remain pretty scant, with the small-town feel of the place not yet repackaged by touristic development. Its genuine local feel means and you won't find any newly built high-rise hotels here. Instead, a couple of guesthouses and rental accommodations sit on the streets of the main urban area. Alternatively, a campground provides a good option for both budget-conscious travelers and those wanting to experience this pleasant spot in a pastoral, low-impact way. For a broad range of accommodations, consider staying in the regional capital Valdivia, just 17.5 km (11 mi) away.
