Lying to the north of the Chilean Fjords on the Pacific coast of Chile, Puerto Montt began life in the mid 19th century when settled by German colonists and is still reminiscent of an alpine village. Its picturesque fishing port has a superb market, specialized in local crafts like handmade boots, ponchos, woollens and copper work. Its setting amid fjords, lakes, snow-capped Andes peaks and forested hills, has made it a popular resort. Sights in Puerto Montt include its oldest building (built in 1856), Iglesia Cathedral, the Regional Museum and the Campanario. Nearby is the tiny fishing port of Angelmo, wooded Isla Tenglo and Parque Provincial Lahuen Nadi.
Puerto Montt is also a stepping stone to the glorious Lake District of Chile: from here tourists can travel via the beautiful lakeside Puerto Varas, beneath Osorno Volcano, and Petrohue, and on by a boat across Lake Todos Los Santos to Peulla, deep amid lakes, rivers, waterfalls and mountains.
The first German colonists arrived to the area in 1852 and have remained to present days a small but influential part of the 130,000 inhabitants. Puerto Montt spreads along the narrow seaboard and climbs the slopes which enclose it to the north. Since 1985, the town has experienced considerable development, fueled by over 30 salmon farms, in addition to fishing, forestry industries and service companies. New restaurants, cafes, hotels and shops have opened.
