Bulnes Fort

Know Bulnes Fort

Located on the shores of the Magellan Strait, 62 km south of Punta Arenas. It is a historical reconstruction founded in October 1843, on the rocky hill at santa ana, overlooking the Strait. Here one can admire the flora and fauna and find great variety of birds. Even though the fort has no original construction left, which was done the first inhabitants of Patagonia, it was reconstructed so that it now looks just as it did when it was first built.
