Fuerte de Niebla, Niebla

#1 of 9 in Museums in Los Rios Region
On the edge of the Pacific Ocean stands Fuerte de Niebla, one of the historical Valdivia forts which the Spanish Empire built in the 17th century in order to protect the city. The fort's foundations lie on a cancagua stone slope about 30 meters high, dominating the entire bay and open sea. Original canons still line the cliffs edge overlooking the bright blue water. See soldiers reenact traditional colonial ceremonies dressed in original costume. Walk inside the Castilian House where numerous drawings, maps and photos illustrate the history and significance of the fort.

  • it's a very nice place where you can see the sea next to the fort but I recommend going in summer so I went in May and it's very cold

  • They killed the pretty thing about the fort with that amount of metal walkways, it was very ugly, that bad design.
