OAT Patagonia trip, Dec 2013.
This portion of the tour took place on the Via Australis boat.
Cape Horn. The Chapel at Cape Horn is named Stella Maris, "Star of the Sea,"
dedicated to those captains and crews from all over the world, who have
made the long journey around Cape Horn, and who have lost their lives in the process.
This chapel was built in late 1982 by the Department of Building and Construction of
the Third Naval Zone. Made of Magellan “lenga” wood, the altar and the pedestal of
the statue of the Virgin del Carmen were brought from Puerto Williams. The
inauguration and the first Mass were held in January 1983.
