Two National Historical Monuments situated on 130 hectares of grassland, scrub and native forests spanning just over 5 kilometers of coastline give life to "Park of the Strait of Magellan " (Fort Bulnes - Port Famine). The park, located across from Tierra del Fuego and only 60 kilometers south of Patagonia´s historical capital, the city of Punta Arenas, provides for an excellent scenario in which to discover the processes that shaped the landscape, the flora & fauna that inhabits it, and the miles-tones that mark the presence of man in Patagonia´s far south.

The place is certainly a very important historical attractive. On the way you will see places such as: Agua Fresca, Punta Santa Ana, a set of typical buildings and stranded ships that remind us the passage of time. You will observe that the landscape hosts abundant wildlife of our region. Almost next to Fort Bulnes, in the trifurcation, there is a monolith indicating the Geographical Center of Chile (Arica / South Pole). From that point towards east, is located the access to the ruins of Rey Don Felipe city, also known as Puerto del Hambre (Port Famine). Finally the main way leading to Fort Bulnes facilities (rebuilt in 1943) that reminiscent the incorporation of the Strait of Magellan to Chile in 1843.
