Puerto Williams in Chile, a growing hamlet draped in snow-covered peaks on the remote southern tip of the South American continent has become the world’s Southernmost city of the world.The Chilean authorities upgraded Puerto Williams to the category of ‘city’ thus making it the world’s southernmost city.

Puerto Williams took over the title from Ushuaia, a neighbour in Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego.

It is the main settlement, port and naval base on Navarino Island in Chile. It faces the Beagle Channel, which is a strait in Tierra del Fuego Archipelago (shared by Chile and Argentina) on South America’s extreme southern tip.
