Discover Chiloé Island

A land steeped in myth and legend, distinguished by its stilted houses, evergreen landscapes and enchanting hospitality, the Chiloé Archipelago is a magical place. Shaped by the joining of the land and sea, the culture of the people here includes innovative architectural techniques, delicious cuisine and mythology rooted in a mix of pre-Columbian religion and legends introduced by European immigrants from long ago.
