Plaza de Armas de Ancud, Ancud

3.5
Sit and take a break from your day's activities at Plaza de Armas de Ancud, a small but bustling central square that regularly hosts a craft bazaar. Overlooked by the town hall, the square displays a collection of mythological Chilote sculptures in the central gazebo, echoing a similar collection in the nearby regional museum (located one block south). The city's tourist information office also sits on the south side of the square. Put Plaza de Armas de Ancud into our Ancud travel planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Walking through the square you will find stone replicas of the main mythological figures of the island tradition (El Trauko, La Pincoya, the Imbunche, etc.),

  • It's the little square in the center of the whole small town... Some people walking, others sitting on the benches around the square, with their church and the commerce in the surroundings.

  • Nice public square. I'd specially recommend seeking the bronze sculptures scattered around the flower beds: they depict local legends (of both native, European and mixed origins) and are accompanied by placards telling the story, in Spanish and in English both.
  • The most SHOOKED pincoya ever.
