  • This is a must-visit to Concepci?n, and you can get there in 30 minutes by bus. The ship was originally a ship, and then came to the Pacific Ocean to be captured by Chile. Chile was renovated and added to the Chilean interior. Until now, it has been renovated into a museum to let people know about the life of the early sea otters.

  • We have visited this place with some foreign friends and it surprises the tribute to both Peruvian and Chilean sailors. It's a huge sign of both countries' heroes. Thank you very much to the Chilean Navy for keeping this historic place in these conditions.
