Island of the Chiloé archipelago, belonging to the group of Chauques Islands. It is a small archipelago within the Chiloé archipelago, with small islands and channels like labyrinths, which makes it the greatest tourist attraction. This town had its great logging boom in 1900. The exploitation of native woods led to a canning industry, producing a great activity in navigation towards the southern north and south of the archipelago. From that time, there are large mansions and a beautiful bridge that joins two sectors. Villa Mechuque is a town with palafitos, built by the sea. There are around 300 people who live in houses with larch tile roofs. The town has a beautiful craft fair and a small museum.
