(260 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Free entry. Try to listen to the tour guide (he is dressed as a pirate) as the experience will be much more entertaining. Be warned, at sunset there's a strong wind blowing and it gets kinda cold.  more »

  • A beautiful place to visit. Amazing view of the bay and learn about the history of the area.
