Fuerte de Niebla, Niebla

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

  • The Fort of fog is a very cute, full of history. It has changed a lot over the years and has modernized to take care of and keep the place. The view is privileged, beautiful, accompanied by the canons of the time, what helps you transport in the history of Valdivia. It is a mandatory stop.

  • The Fort is very cute, access is free, keep it well. The only downside is that they installed some footbridges of aluminum that don't stick, or together with the place which has a medieval medium wave. The catwalks are horrible, they should have been of wood or something more adhok.

  • Very nice place, 15 minutes from Valdivia by a wonderful way with some curves and beautiful views of the Valdivia River at its delta to the sea. You reach the Fort easily, all signposted. The place is very well preserved, is very nice, offers spectacular views to the Pacific Ocean and the mouth of the Valdivia River. There are tour guides. The enclosure is open until 8 pm and entry is free.
