Puerto Montt

Compartir en

Feel the wonderful sea breeze and look out at the enormity of the Pacific while sitting in front of the ocean in Puerto Montt. Discover its port identity, the salmon culture and its rich cuisine.

Enjoy wonderful seafood at the Angelmó cove, star of the city that welcomes you with a table full of fish and seafood from the area. Visit its many restaurants, some with a view of Tenglo Island and Calbuco Volcano, where everything is prepared on the spot: the paila marina (seafood stew), the “cancato” (stew made of fish, chorizo, cheese and tomato) and the unbeatable sea urchins. To buy local produce and utensils, walk through the Angelmó crafts fair.

Are you a fan of architecture and structural design? Then walk along the streets of Puerto Montt and be amazed by the cathedral built from larch wood, the Jesuit Church, the Diego Rivera Art House and the Juan Pablo II Museum.

International cruise ships and ferries on their way to Chiloé sail through the fjords of Aysén and Magallanes, beginning your adventure on the Carretera Austral. And if you love the sea and want to relax on the soft sands of the south of Chile, in the summer you can rest on the beaches of Pelluco, Pelluhuin, Puntilla Tenglo and Chinquihue.

Enjoy a rich and varied menu, where fish and shellfish are the main attractions. Here you can also buy some of the best souvenirs of your trip in the arts and crafts market, found across from the main market.

If you travel to this mystical land of witches and wizards, don’t miss out on the Ancud Regional Museum where you can get to know the history, mythology and crafts of the area, as well as its indigenous past. Visit the San Antonio Fort too, where the view of the port is spectacular.

The people from this area live off the sea, so it´s a good idea to enjoy their food before you begin traveling through the rest of the island.
