... births on the island outside of wedlock. From Ancud we headed south to the islands capital, Castro, a larger, grittier town without many of Ancud's charms on first impressions. It is famous for its beautiful Palafito housing, which are brightly painted, traditional wooden houses protruding on stilts from the shore into the water and its church, Iglesia San Francisco, which resembles a bright yellow and purple painted Disneyland castle from the outside, but is one ...
