A smallish free museum looking at the history of the local area. Well worth a look and takes around 1hr to see everything.

A really nice afternoon from Ancud. There’s a bus out there from the rural bus terminal in Ancud, leaves about mid day and takes about an hour. The bus ride is very nice and scenic in itself through countryside and along the coast. The bus back is at 430pm so you have about 3 1/2 hours to enjoy the area, which is plenty of time. There’s a short walk on an unsealed road from where the bus stops to Ahui beach, there’s a track from there up to the fort. No cost to enter, there’s a few nice trails around the headland and the fort and down to the Beaches. Good spot for a picnic lunch :)

While I was not that enthusiastic about visiting this museum I was pleasantly surprised and delighted. Here one can get an insight into how these old churches were constructed. I especially liked that this museum house pieces from the old churches that they had saved and curated. Some of the Spanish churches on the UNESCO World Heritage list have been, over time, heavily restored. But fortunately many objects such as windows and doors have been saved. One cannot appreciate the old Spanish wooden churches without.

This small square contains numerous sculptures from Chilote mythology, including Tenten and Caicai, the Invunche and the Widow. There is also a monument honouring firefighters. Many tourist attractions can be found around this plaza, such as the Museo Regional and the Catedral de Ancud.

This Cathedral, though small, has an amazing history and ambience. It is on Chiloe Island, an experience all to itself. The Cathedral is simple and very beautiful. There was a lady there who took it upon herself to welcome our group and give us some insight into the island's history.
