A voyage through the natural and human history of the Strait of Magellan.
The park's main interest places:
Visitor Center: The gate to the Strait. The Visitor Center hosts an interpretative an multimedia display about the natural and human history of the Strait of Magellan. The Center's terrace offers unmatching views of Port Famine.
Fort Bulnes (National Historical Monument): Historical reconstruction of the original Fort built by a young Chilean Republic when it claimed possession of the Strait in 1843. The fort explains the origins of the City of Punta Arenas and it's also a traditional field day for the magellanic community.
