Chiloe: the island of legends

caleuche2

During rainy winter nights, the people of Chiloé, off the coast of Los Lagos Region, carry out an old tradition each year. They sit around a fireplace and begin to tell children or foreign visitors about the different beliefs that make up the local mythology which characterizes this magic island.

The lakes and rivers, abundant forests and a temperate rainy climate marked by fog and strong winds, endow this southern island with very special conditions that stimulate its inhabitants into keeping the traditional beliefs alive.
