Punta Arenas - Chilean Antartic Institute HQ
Just in front of Magellan’s Statue, across Punta Arenas’ main square, you will find the HQ of the Chilean Antarctic Institute (INACH). Chile has a significant Antarctic scientific and naval program, with many bases distributed along the ice-continent. If you want to know about INACH activities – this is the place to go.
The building is quite beautiful by itself.
Just recently the Prince of Monaco and the Prince of Holland visited INACH in Punta Arenas. Often other members of different European and worldwide governments visit INACH, the central hub of Chilean polar matters.
The library is excellent and you can also attend talks and exhibitions for the public in Antarctica related matters. [more ]
