The fabled island of Chiloe has long been one of the least developed areas of Chile, with a natural beauty that now charms visitors. The capital of Castro lies in a fjord on the east coast. Here you will encounter the vivid orange and lavender cathedral in the Plaza de Armas, the waterfront Feria or market stocked with handmade woollens, and distinctive houses known as palafitos perched high above high tide on tall stilts. Chiloe's verdant countryside varies from conifer forests to open meadows and farms. The Parque Nacional Chiloe, on the Pacific coast, is home to sea lions, the Chilot fox, and Pudoe (miniature Chilean deer).
The original inhabitants of Chiloe were Chonos and then Mapuche Indians. The Spanish took possession in 1567 and Chiloe was the last bastion of Spanish resistance in South America, surrendering in 1826.
