Meet with us this fort located on the banks of the estrecho de Magallanes

You will know this historic and ancient place. Fuerte Bulnes was a Chilean fort located on the Strait of Magellan, 62 kilometers south of Punta Arenas and a few kilometers from Cape Froward. For the centenary of its foundation, it was rebuilt, being reopened as a site museum in 1943.

It was founded on October 30, 1843 on the rocky nose of Santa Ana, under the command of President Manuel Bulnes Prieto. It was destroyed in a few years, leaving the place in a state of abandonment.
