CASTRO AND ENVIRONS Ver fotos
Castro was the Spanish Provincial capital until 1788, when Ancud replaced it. Little by little it regained importance as a centre for the archipelago and eventually reclaimed its status as capital. After surviving great earthquakes, such as the one of 1960, and devastating fires, Castro has emerged as a major business and tourist centre. It is a main departure point for exploring the archipelago. Visiting the northern part of the town, one sees the traditional "Palafitos". Public buildings, shops and restaurants surround the Plaza de Armas, in the centre of town. Calle Blanco leads down to the port which is full of vessels arriving from the islands and coastal communities, carrying passengers, farm produce and hand crafts to the markets.
