Chiloé Travel Guide


The colorful wooden houses of Chonchi are on a hillside so steep that it's known in Spanish as the Ciudad de los Tres Pisos (City of Three Stories). The town's name means "slippery earth" in the Huilliche language, and if you tromp up the town's steep streets on a rainy day you can understand why. Arranged around a scenic harbor, Chonchi wins raves as one of Chiloé's most picturesque towns.
