Castro is together with Ancud the most important city on the island. Located in the middle of the eastern coast of the island, it appeared to be a good base, and this is where I had my hotels (I had to relocate, because the first hotel did not have room for my last night) and rented my car. Castro is a lively town, sometimes almost a little chaotic.

The church in Castro is one of the 16 World Heritage churches and it illustrates the principle well with its bright colouring, although the yellow parts are not in wood, but that is a metal shell that is covering the wood.
