Neighborhood: Castle Hill

Almost hanging from the cliff face is this architectural oddity, built for the nitrate and coal baron Gustavo Adolfo Wulff at the beginning of the twentieth century. Waves break on the rocks directly below it, adding to the dramatic effect. The structure now houses the Museum of Maritime Culture. It contains an interesting collection of artifacts related to Chile's glorious naval history, including reproductions of ships, documents and assorted oddities. Definitely take time to appreciate the edifice itself; it is a fascinating example of another age and style.
