Cool- nicely located & maintained
Feb. 2020 • Friends
Best thing to do in Ancud. So go there. Nicely maintained- kind of small- but nice. Nothing absolutely impressive. Thousands of more impressive fortresses. But as your there you should def. See the ruins, take pictures and have a nice walk.

Great view
Jan. 2020
We were on a private tour and stopped by the fort after lunch. It had a nice view of the lake, but there really wasn't much else there. I wouldn't make a spsecial trip.

Beautiful and easy stop

We visited this place at around midday on a weekday. There were almost no tourists. It is a nice place to walk by and enjoy the view. No entrance fee.

Well worth a stop

Well preserved and pleasant views over the sea, it is worth making a stop here when in Ancud. As you walk downhill from the street to the front gate, turn right before the main entry up a dirt path for the best views of the fort and sea in one vista!

AN EXCELLENT TRIVIA NOTE
Nov. 2018 • Friends
San Antonio Fort overlooks the Bay of Ancud. It is a windswept area. Cannons are of course present. The grounds are well manicured, local vendors taking up some of the green grass and walkways. The renovations are good. The most important point, however, is the fort was the last bastion of Spain in Chile's fight for independence. From this place, Spain said 'adios' to its Chilean possession.

Nice spot on the headland near Ancud

Another interesting historic fort site. Nice views from this headland near Ancud. Here was a few vendors selling souvenirs and crafts on the path down to the fort.

OK but not amazing
Jan. 2018 • Couples
It's nice for a little walk around. It's not mind-blowing, but we liked it, and it's good for a stroll along the edge of the sea.

Not much here
Jan. 2018 • Couples
As above. A few old cannons and street vendors selling little wooden boats and paintings. I think there were some unofficial tour guides giving ill-informed unsolicited speeches, then asking for money. It is free and only takes 10 minutes to walk around.

Nice place to visit, no information in English
Nov. 2017 • Couples
As this is a historic site in a beautiful spot overlooking the sea, it was worth a visit, but if Ancud really want to attratc tourists information in English is needed
