Fortress sights in Ancud
- Sort by:
During the wars of independence, Fuerte San Antonio was Spain’s last Chilean outpost. At the northwest corner of town, late-colonial cannon emplacements look down on the harbor from the early-19th-century remains of the fortress. There’s not much left but a well-preserved wall, but the views and historical significance are impressive. There’s a somewhat secluded beach, Playa Gruesa, behind the north wall.
