The location is central because it is not far from the center of Ancud. At the entrance you will find a typical craft offer of the area.
Great view over the ocean and the park is though very small, but the entrance is free !
It's a must see in Ancud, however there is not so much guide for the tourist. This is a historical point, where one of the decisive battles for the independence of Chile took place, as the commemorative plate says (in a very old spanish).
