Fort Bulnes: a place near Punta Arenas and steeped in history

Nuestro Tour Fuerte Bulnes visita al fuerte que está ubicado a orillas del estrecho de Magallanes y a 55 km al sur de Punta Arenas. This place is a historical reconstruction of the fort founded in October 1843.

In addition, it is possible to admire the flora and fauna of the place, finding species such as the lenga, the ñire, the notro and likewise a great variety of birds.

We can affirm that Fort Bulnes is extremely important in the history of the Magallanes region. During the government of Manuel Bulnes, the president decided to effectively take possession of the place for fear of the expansion of European powers.

Learn about the human and natural history of the Magallanes region

With the Tour Fort Bulnes, you will visit various places of interest and feel immersed in the past and history of the area. You will be able to see an exhibition on human and natural history in relation to the Strait of Magellan. Some of the highlights are the viewpoint of the Strait, the O’higgins lighthouse and the church.

Fort Bulnes had two batteries of two cannons each and an underground magazine. Two systems were used in the construction: logs placed horizontally and joined at the corners, and wooden structures filled with champas.

The fort facilities were rebuilt according to their original characteristics. The place where Fort Bulnes is located is the same where three centuries before the Spanish colonizers settled.

To finish, a mandatory stop is made at a geographical landmark: the middle of Chile (considered from the northern limit of Chile to the south pole).
