Another interesting historic fort site. Nice views from this headland near Ancud. Here was a few vendors selling souvenirs and crafts on the path down to the fort.

It's nice for a little walk around. It's not mind-blowing, but we liked it, and it's good for a stroll along the edge of the sea.

As above. A few old cannons and street vendors selling little wooden boats and paintings. I think there were some unofficial tour guides giving ill-informed unsolicited speeches, then asking for money. It is free and only takes 10 minutes to walk around.

The fort at Ancud is a large construction right on a headland overlooking the water. It is a beautiful location, well maintained and we'll worth a visit.
