The southernmost little town in the world

The village has unique views of the sea.

Tierra del Fuego
With only 100 inhabitants, Puerto Almanza is a picturesque fishing village located in Tierra del Fuego, 75 km from Ushuaia, on the banks of the Almanza River. From its shores you can see the other side of our Beagle Channel, port of Willams, Chile. Its inhabitants are artisanal fishermen who are dedicated to the extraction of spider crabs, mussels, cholgas... To get to Almanza from Ushuaia, take Route 3, which for a moment forks through a branch called J and becomes a beautiful path of trees that intertwine on the way to the sea..... The village has unique views of the sea: its colorful boats, its little fairytale houses, its magical little school, with only 4 students, children of fishermen. You can also see the remains of cannons, abandoned as witnesses of what was once the confrontation with our Chilean neighbours. Ideal for walking along its shores, relaxing, taking a deep breath and letting yourself be carried away by its peace and silence.... At lunchtime, the mini-restaurants "La Sirena y el Capitan" and "La Mesita de Almanza", run by their owners, who fish, cook and receive, make you feel at home on this trip. Don't read the letter in both of them, let your hosts decide for you; all natural, all homemade... This little town to the south, where everything seems to be ending, is the beginning of a unique little place; a work of art of nature and the delicate hand of its fishermen. The image that remains in the memory seems to fit in the palm of the hand, unforgettable.....
