Information about Fort San Antonio

Direccion: Lord Cochrane 400, Ancud - See on the Map

Fort San Antonio is a Spanish fortification built in 1770 in Ancud, in the region of Los Lagos on the famous island of Chiloé.

This was the place where the last Spanish flag flew in our country and is one of the most important historical sites in Ancud, which has remained almost intact since the 19th century.

Fort San Antonio has a huge stone wall with canyons that point towards the sea and was designed by the engineer Lazaro de Ribera to protect the city of Ancud against the attacks of military and pirates who sailed along the coasts.

Today it is a park that visitors can see the 6 bronze cannons and walk through the park, a historical wonder of our country.
