Travel back in time during this “Voyage to the Past” and learn about the saga lived by the fearless navigators and explorers of the region and first inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego. Discover the charm of this most southerly city, situated by the Strait of Magellan.


It was 1519 when the Magellan expedition left Spain, determined to find the waterway to the East Indies. They set on of the most extreme adventures of mankind, sailing for more than three years over unknown oceans and uncharted territories.


Visit the Nao Victoria, a full-size replica of Magellan’s ship. It recreates its entire structural features with historical accuracy and offers visitors the opportunity to live an intense experience, through surround sound and interactive replicas.


Stop to visit the Maggiorino Borgatello Museum, founded by the Salesian missionaries, which gives a comprehensive overview of the regional flora and fauna, the habitat of the indigenous people and regional history.


Drive to Cerro la Cruz, and enjoy the same view of the Magellan Strait, the port and the legendary Tierra del Fuego Island, that Ferdinand Magellan had when he was there. Stop for a few minutes at Plaza de Armas, the main square, before going back to the pier.
