Dinosaurs Are Real!
The Steamer Amadeo (1893), grounded 1932 in front of Estancia San Gregorio, Chile.
The Amadeo´s last cruise around Cape Horn and Patagonia ended in disaster. Along the coastal highway between Punta Arenas (Chile) and Rio Gallegos (Argentina), many vessels seem to have shared her fate, including The Ambassador, beached 50 feet away from it.
"Visit to Pali Aike National Park, 195 kilometers northeast of Punta Arenas. Leaving this city by international route 255, along the edge of Magellan Strait, there is first visit to historical monument and ancient cattle establishment San Gregorio and steamer Amadeo, beached in the Strait (124 km. from Punta Arenas). Continuing the trip up to km. 166, there is left detour to Punta Delgada, main town of San Gregorio."
